6 August 2020 / Thursday Zoom Webinar – “Lockdown special for birders – what to look for in the garden”

This course is free to members of Wits Bird Club.

Non Members pay R50-00 – please email proof of payment to witsbc123@gmail.com.

Lance Robinson and Lesley Cornish will present part 1 of their course on garden birds. Fortunately, whether you’re living in a small townhouse or apartment, or have a larger garden, birds are everywhere for us to enjoy!  Lesley and Lance will be taking us through the finer details and some behavioural aspects of some of our familiar garden birds as these birds are the foundation of our birding and provide an opportunity each day to listen, observe and learn. Join us as we delve a little deeper into the lives of some of our favourite feathered friends as even some of the common garden birds still have secrets to reveal.

Time: 18h45 for 19h00
