As we ramp up for our Virtual Allegany Nature Pilgrimage, grab a beverage of your choice and enjoy some fun. What is the difference between a bird watcher and a birder? Do I care? Why do birders wear silly hats? Have you secretly had a desire to know what kind of bird you saw but were afraid to ask? How is that you need to know what kind of bird it is to find it in a bird book? Have you asked, “do I really need to spend money on binoculars?” Has someone shared their binoculars with you and all you saw were fuzzy circles? Lon started teaching Beginning Birdwatching in 1977. Birding can be frustrating AND INTIMIDATING. Join Lon for 20 minutes or so for a fun introduction to bird watching. He will touch upon characteristics, bird guides, online resources, binoculars all while having some fun.
