Introduction to Gulls Workshop- January 9th
I have received a couple of emails from people who were interested in the introductory Gull identification workshop but were unable to attend the at the time. Therefore, I will be offering this workshop again on January 9th. We will be focusing on learning feather groups and ageing. Given that gulls can looked markedly different as they age it is imperative to correctly age any gull before attempting to identify it to species. In this workshop I will teach how to correctly age 2,3 and 4 year Gulls. If you unsure what that means,this is even more reason to attend the workshop. As well,before you can age a gull it is essential to know what to look for and to have an understanding of the feather groups that comprise a gulls plumage. After this workshop you should have an good understanding of how to correctly age all gulls that spend the winter in Newfoundland.Participants from the last workshop were thrilled with their new found abilities and were very successful in ageing gulls in our field session that followed the classroom portion and have done well in the quiz gull series that is still ongoing. To book your place in this workshop please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost and other details available below- click to enlarge the image.
