Kenya

Join Portland Audubon on the wildlife trip of a lifetime! Kenya is renowned for its remarkable diversity of landscapes, animals, and cultures.

Seabird Identification: Nearshore and Offshore Birds

Join seabird biologist and birder Greg Smith and learn to identify seabirds by sight, flight manner, and wing morphology. May through June is a great time to learn and practice your seabird identification. After taking this class you will be ready to identify seabirds at a distance, which is often the case for this group of birds. Whether you are birding from shore or lucky enough to land a spot on a pelagic trip, this class will get you ready by focusing on the behavior of these birds in flight, as too often we only get a fleeting glimpse before they disappear into the fog.

Birds of a Feather: Vireonidae: Vireos, Shrike-Babblers, Erporni

There are around 10,000 bird species on this planet, and this series will introduce you to some of the families that make up the class of birds known as Aves. We will review each family's evolutionary history, distribution, natural history, fun facts, and look at conservation concerns for the family as a whole. This class is intended for birders who are looking for a deeper understanding of avian taxonomy and biology. Perhaps you’ve been up on Mt. Tabor and heard the zu-wee of the Hutton’s Vireo, or the rambling call of the Warbling Vireo and thought who are these little songbirds related to? We will examine the evolutionary history, anatomy, physiology, and natural history of Vireonidae, the family of vireos, shrike-babblers, and Erpornis.
