Every spring, millions of birds pass through the Monadnock Region on their northward migration, so there is no better time to explore this amazing natural phenomenon. From waterfowl to warblers and everything in between, we’ll learn about the evolution of bird migration, how to identify returning migrants, and how birds prepare for the breeding season.
This field-based course will meet for weekly socially-distant birding walks at field sites throughout the SuperSanctuary on Mondays, March 29 and April 5, 12 & 19, from 8 to 9 a.m. Participants will be expected to follow the Harris Center’s COVID-19 outing guidelines.
Cost: $40 for Harris Center supporters / $60 all others
Instructor: Steven Lamonde grew up in the South Shore area of Massachusetts and has been a bird enthusiast from a young age. After discovering the world of birding during a Great Backyard Bird Count in college, hardly a day has gone by that he hasn’t submitted at least one eBird checklist. Steven is currently an adjunct faculty member at Antioch University New England, where he teaches graduate courses in geographic information systems and manages the Antioch Spatial Analysis Lab. In addition to teaching, conducting wildlife research, and striving to be a 100% naturalist, Steven coordinates sections of the Keene and Brattleboro Christmas Bird Counts.
