Have you always wanted to learn about birding but never found the time?  Here is your opportunity.  The course is designed for beginning- and intermediate-level birders.  In the first session, we’ll discuss birds and their identification, songs, habitat preferences, and the use of optics in birding. In the following sessions, we’ll practice birding techniques and bird song identification.  This involves moderate walking.  If it rains, the class will be held indoors.


Ed Neumuth, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, private practice 1970-2005; has led field trips for the Trustees of the Reservations (now simply the Trustees), Massachusetts Audubon, and the Berkshires Natural Resources Council; has formerly conducted breeding bird surveys for the Dept. of the Interior, former compiler of the Central Berkshire Christmas Bird Count and past president of the Hoffmann Bird Club; frequent OLLI instructor.

Please note this course begins later in the semester and continues into May.
