The Art of the Nest - Identifying Birds By What They Build
Tuesday May 26 6:30-8:00PM (Class); Saturday May 30; 8:30-11:00AM (Field)
Location: McClellan Ranch Preserve, 22221 McClellan Rd, Cupertino
Cost: $30 members; $45 non-members
Leader: Freddy Howell and Toby Goldberg (SCVAS Ed Committee)

The way a bird builds its nest can tell you where it lives, what it eats, and much more. This information, in turn, can be a valuable tool in learning how to identify birds in the field. We'll discuss the different ways birds nest, examine many of their creations, and learn what we need to look for when birding. Our field trip will follow up with a visit to the nest boxes at McClellan Ranch to see nesting in action.

All ages welcome (with adult supervision). Register Online or by calling the SCVAS office at 408-252-3747.
