Southwest Florida is a critical stopover site for thousands of migrating and wintering shorebirds.  In this class, Adam DiNuovo of Audubon Florida will discuss the life history of these birds and the amazing journeys many of them make annually.  Winter shorebirds are notoriously difficult to ID, so practicing the skills learned in this class is essential.  You will learn how to use plumage, size, and behavior to help with identification.

The classroom session will take place at the Rookery Bay Field Station on Shell Island Road.  It will be followed by a trip to Tigertail Beach, one of the most important winter shorebird sites in Florida, where we will see many of the birds discussed.  Be prepared to wade in water up to your knees, with adequate footwear that will protect your feet (no flip flops).  Collier County beach parking fee applies ($8, free with sticker).  Cost is  $40.
