Our work

Birding for Beginners- Songbirds at Silverwood

Sunday, May 15, 2022
8:00 am10:00 am
online and at various field trip locations in San Diego County

Nurture your love and knowledge of birds with a beginner’s birding class designed to connect you with the birding community and improve your skills in bird identification. We will spend quality time observing and discussing birds and their behavior, to build your understanding of the sights, sounds, behaviors, and natural history of a selection of our feathered friends.

This is a five-week class which will be divided into two sections: online on Thursday evenings and in-person field trips on Sundays. Classes will begin on April 14 and field trips end on May 22. Full details are on the web page (see and click the item for this event.) Registrants will receive full details, directions and reminders of each activity on the schedule.

One of the greatest birding challenges: songbirds. We'll use our eyes and ears (and apps) to find them and sort them out.

Recording of the first session via Zoom will be available to class participants for a limited period of time.

Instructor: Jen Hajj and field trip leaders

To attend the entire course: $135 for SDAS members, $160 for non-members.
