Discover the joys of birds & birdwatching

Explore avian biology and learn what makes birds so fascinating. Jen Walsh, a research associate at the Fuller Evolutionary Biology Lab, will lead us on birding excursions on the grounds of the famed Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

We'll study a wealth of birds—from the tiny Ruby-Throated Hummingbird to the Pileated Woodpecker—at Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary, where hundreds of species live and migrate among its 220 acres of woods, marshes, and ponds.

Jen will also lead seminars, hands-on activities, a tour of the Cornell Museum of Vertebrates, and an excursion to the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. Note: This class meets early mornings for optimal birdwatching.
