Join GARNA Executive Director, Dominique Naccarato to learn about birding, an exciting way you can interact with nature anytime and anywhere. Because you can engage in birding from the car, while hiking or biking, or even alongside serious birders who keep a birding “life list,” it is the ideal hobby for nature-lovers of all ages and abilities.
In this hour-long Zoom lecture from 7 to 8 PM on April 15, Dominique will uncover the basics of birding, including how to identify flight patterns, body and beak shape and function, and bird sounds. She will also introduce a wide range of topic including how to use binoculars, where to find birds, how to attract them to your yard, how we can conserve and provide bird habitat, and how bird behavior can provide insight into what’s going on in our neighborhood or ecosystem.
Dominique has been GARNA’s director for the past three years, but she began learning about birding under the mentorship of GARNA Birding Club leaders Andrew Mackie, Denny Arter and Sally Waterhouse when she first began working at GARNA in 2013. Birding continues to teach GARNA’s Director to take a system’s level view and to value a sit-spot for viewing birds and habitat.
