October 5 – Demystifying Shorebird Identification
When you locate shorebirds, do you feel the need to run away because you can’t identify them? Do you watch them for a while and realize that you’ll never know what they are? This presentation will help demystify some of the identification challenges associated with shorebirds. We’ll look at bill shape, plumage, behavior, and habitat and incorporate some eBird data to help increase our knowledge of shorebirds. We’ll concentrate on shorebirds found in Clark and neighboring counties but may include a few from other spots in Washington. Jim has given shorebird identification workshops and led shorebird field trips in San Diego, the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and Ocean Shores, WA. He currently lives in Battle Ground, WA.
