Are you looking for a new and exciting way to connect with nature? Come learn the basics to identifying birds through field marks, behavior, and calls to help take the mystery out of backyard birds. We will be looking for live birds as well. Birds are pretty, usually abundant, and you never know when you might see something unexpected. A great hobby for people of all ages and a fun social activity that connects across generations. Be a part of the 2019 Dallas County Big Year Birding Challenge. Dallas County citizens may be surprised at the number of different bird species that exist within the area. We have diverse habitats and unique geographic features that are attractive to many varieties of birds. In an effort to educate the public, DCCB staff would like to partner with Dallas County citizens to document as many different kinds of birds within the county for the year 2019. In the birding community this is known as a Big Year.
Registration is required for this free program.
