HONR268G The Science of Birdwatching (3 Credits)

In this course you will learn the skill of birdwatching (or "birding") and will contribute your observations to a world database of sightings that help establish trends in overall bird populations. Birding (and bird feeding) is one of the most popular pastimes in the United States, with tens of billions of dollars spent annually by enthusiasts. Birds also tell us about the health of our natural environment: by noting where birds are, and where they are absent, scientists can learn about harmful changes to our world ecosystem and how to reverse them. We can help out by becoming responsible citizen scientists. This course will feature regular field trips to observe birds in their natural habitats. No prior birding experience is needed.
