Romance is in the Air - Spring '12

American Avocets

This class focuses on the phenomenon of bird courtship, mating, nest building, and raising young. 

Our breeding passerines will have arrived from the south, and will be setting up their nest homes.  The few resident shorebirds we have will also be nesting along the bayfront, while terns and Western Gulls will be feeding their young.  It's a great time to study bird behavior!

The class will be held at the Albany Community Center, a new venue for us.  There is parking behind the Library / Community Center, and on adjacent side streets.  The classroom is downstairs.  Registration is through GGAS.
