Bird Study Workshop Oct 7-9

Join me for a Bird Study Workshop at Block Creek Ranch in the beautiful Texas hill country. We'll observe birds in the field, learn about them in classroom sessions, spend time in quiet observation, and work on journaling.

Those who use a camera to help them identify birds in the field are welcome to bring that along. You'll enjoy the fabulous photo blinds.
