The Tahoma Audubon Society will hold a beginning birding class starting Nov. 4.
This class is intended for people who want to identify the birds at a backyard feeder or want to know what kind ducks are swimming on a local lake. The class will help participants develop the skills to identify birds on their own.
The instructor is Marcus Roening, a master birder and past president of both the Washington Ornithological Society and Tahoma Audubon Society.
The classes will be held 6:45-9 p.m. Mondays, from Nov. 4-18, at the Tacoma Nature Center, 1919 S. Tyler St., Tacoma. There also will be two local field trips Nov. 9 and 16, from 9 a.m.-noon.
The cost is $50 for Audubon members and $65 for nonmembers. Transportation for the field trips is not included.
To register, call the nature center at 253-591-6439. For more information, contact the society at 253-565-9278 or tahomaaudubon.org.
