Before you rush to google it, ?orinthlogy? is the study and identification of birds. This time of the year there are still a number of birds in the area or flying through, and they are a lot easier to see without the cover of leaves.
The City of Kennedale is hosting a workshop for beginners or anyone else who would like to come on bird identification. It will be led by local ornithologist Erin Hatchett. {{more}}
The workshop will provide hands-on instruction, including: – an introduction to binoculars and how to focus the binoculars on birds – a presentation on bird anatomy as it pertains to field identification – field marks of birds common to this region – basic ecology, habitat associations, and behaviors to assist in identification.
