Flight for Birders Course
BIRD IDENTIFICATION & CONSERVATION COURSE
9 & 10 NOVEMBER 2018
‘Flight for Birders’ was developed to assist novices and experienced birdwatchers to become involved in bird-watching in a practical and sustainable way. Basic steps in the identification of birds will be highlighted and the identification of garden birds, water birds, birds of prey and more difficult species such as swallows, waders and ‘little brown jobs’ will be discussed systematically.
The course is illustrated with more than 1,600 slides and drawings. Emphasis will be placed on the further development of the garden Route region as a top birding destination. Important conservation issues will be discussed and details will be given on how ordinary birders could become involved in conservation actions. Costs include a practical outing, basic notes and certificates endorsed by BirdLife South Africa.
All other details available from Elaine – see below.
VENUE: NG Church Hall, Knysna
TIME: 9 & 10 November 2018, both at 09h00

Roughly 30% of the course focuses on the growing importance of birding tourism and therefore people working in the tourism and conservation industries should be encouraged to participate. The course now also includes details of BirdLife Overberg’s CleanMarine coastal conservation campaigns and other critical conservation issues. We also have gift vouchers available – an ideal gift for budding birders.
