February Program - Wednesday

Join us this Wednesday, February 25th for a workshop on difficult bird identification. With spring migration right around the corner, come learn about tricks to identify some difficult groups, such as gulls and shorebirds. Shawn Billerman, a PhD candidate in Matt Carling's lab at the University of Wyoming, will walk you through the identification of the gulls and shorebirds of Wyoming. Shawn has become familiar with Wyoming birds over the past 4 years, and has been birding for the past 18 years. For his PhD research, Shawn is studying hybridization in sapsuckers in the Pacific Northwest, and has broad interests in ecology and evolution in birds. Come join us for an evening of identification tips in preparation for spring migration, which will be underway in a matter of weeks.
