Spring Bird Identification Classes at Radnor Lake

Northern Cardinal by Don Horne

Spring Birdsong Workshop:  April 12, 19, 26 & May 3

 

Introduction to Tenn. Birds:  May 10, 17, 24 & 31

 

This spring Richard Connors will be offering two bird identification classes at Radnor Lake S.N.A.

 

The first class is a spring birdsong workshop. This class is designed for those who have had a beginning class, or already have some basic knowledge of our birds. Emphasis will be on bird identification by song as well as sight. Participants will be trained for finding and identifying birds by song, especially those colorful songsters the wood warblers, some of whom are seasonal migrants and only stay for a brief visit. First meeting: April 12

 

The second class is for beginners or those who want to brush-up on all our local birds. This is a general bird identification class, with wide-ranging discussions tailored to participants’ interests.  Through this class you will increase your proficiency in bird identification, learn how to enhance your yard to attract birds, learn what bird resources are available, and learn where to go in our area to look for birds. First meeting: May 10

 

The classes meet Wednesdays 10AM – 12:00 Noon in the visitor center meeting room, Radnor Lake State Natural Area, 1160 Otter Creek Rd., Nashville.

 

There is a $50 fee for each 4-week class, with half the fee going to Friends of Radnor Lake SNA.

 

Class is taught by Richard Connors, local birder and photographer, with 30 years birding experience, past president of Tennessee Ornithological Society, and board member of Cumberland Harpeth Audubon Society. Students will be encouraged to participate in separately sponsored local bird outings such as the Wednesday morning walks at Radnor Lake, bird walks at Metro Parks, and Audubon and TOS field trips.
