Event Description:
 Welcome in the spring migration of bird life with fellow enthusiasts as we head out for a fun day to spot and enjoy both resident birds and our migrating feathered friends!

Please come prepared for the day with binoculars, spotting scopes, field guide books, cameras, proper layers, lunch, water, and a flair for adventure, and laughs!

Brian has worked on various birds of prey projects concerning hawks, eagles, and owls. Baxter and Don Jones combined forces to publish an article in the winter edition of Sandpoint Magazine 2017, on winter birding with focus on birds of prey, waterfowl, woodpeckers and songbirds. Baxter has been instructing outdoor education programs for over 16 years.
