The third installment of Bergen Country Audubon Society's Birding for Beginners classes is this Sunday at DeKorte Park at 1 p.m.
Last Sunday we had 50 people at the Visitor Center inside the Environment Center to learn all about binoculars for bird-watching, followed by 90 minutes of watching Ospreys, Redtails and other birds. (See the photo by Myke Mazone above. Thanks, Myke!)
Details on this Sunday's class and walk follow.
