Are you curious about the lives of the birds around you? Have you ever wondered what they eat, where they rest at night or what they're saying? This half-day field workshop blends a little bit of bird identification with seeking out bird tracks & sign, interpreting their sounds and understanding their lives. Spend the morning with bird language expert & wildlife tracker Dan Gardoqui to gain a deeper connection to the birds. Participants should be dressed to be outdoors for the entire three hours - regardless of temperature. Dress in layers. Bring snacks and a drink.  For adults & interested teens. Group size limited to 15 people. Presented in partnership with York County Audubon. This same program will also be offered on Sunday, May 5.
