Learn birding basics at Marymoor Park

Learn the basic birds of this area at Marymoor Regional Park from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14, and from 8 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 17.
   Participants will learn how to recognize birds and how to use binoculars and spotting scopes for better views. Discover some of the good birding areas in King County and available resources for learning to watch birds.
   Join a King County Park naturalist and an experienced Audubon Society field trip leader in this two-part class. The class starts with an indoor session to build beginning birdwatching skills. On the following Saturday, the group will visit a King County park site to put skills to work. No experience is necessary. The classes are for the true beginner.
