Think spring birding season is almost over? Think again! Pacific Northwest birdwatching excitement extends into the summer season. And who better than local avian aficionado Libby Mills to help us direct our curiosity? Drawing on her 50 years of bird watching experience, Libby will point out the potential second clutches of resident chickadees, wrens and robins as well as searching out just arrived tropical warblers, grosbeaks and flycatchers. 

The course will be located on private land outside of Deming, in our socially-distanced small group with no public crowds. We are extremely lucky to have access to this unique area - the first time an Institute course has been offered at this property! 

The day will start relatively early and move between a few different micro-habitats on the landscape. This will allow us to see our bird neighbors late in the breeding season and in their respective summer activities. 

There will be opportunities to listen to birds sing and respond on their territories, as some species' young will be making their first sojourns into independence!
