Hummingbird Identification

Join Liz Urban and Heidi Ware Carlisle for this special, two-session, workshop to build your birding skills! Brought to you in partnership by Golden Eagle Audubon Society, Intermountain Bird Observatory, & Southwestern Idaho Birders Association.

Who isn't fascinated by these 'flying jewels'? Join us to learn more about the five species that breed, migrate, and even over-winter in our state. This workshop will cover the basics and advanced identification characteristics for our hummingbirds. While the males can be easily told apart, the females and youngsters can be a challenge to identify.

The workshop will consist of an evening classroom session to review our hummingbird species including their size/shape, color patterns, habitats and behaviors. After the classroom work we will visit the IBO hummingbird banding station near Idaho City for some hands-on explanation of hummingbird identification including species and age feather characteristics.

First Session - Classroom component:

July 11th 6:00PM-7:30PM at the Meridian Library 

Second Session - Field component:

July 14th ~7:00AM - 11:00AM at a private residence in Idaho City. 

This will be a 'private'/non-public banding day at the station so that we can provide a quality learning environment. 

Please note that this field trip is self-drive and that no public restrooms are available on site (further details provided during the first session).
