BRN Elective (1 hour)


Birdwatching is one of the nation’s fastest growing outdoor activities. In this class, instructor Kevin Burke introduces us to eBird, a free online program that will help you track and share your sightings and join in a world-wide citizen science revolution. eBird is a joint project started by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon that now has more than 100,000 active users, and participation is growing at the dizzying rate of about 40 percent per year. The result is a rich database on bird abundance and distribution that is available to all.

*Instructions for joining via Zoom will be included in your confirmation email following registration. A recording of the class will be made available to registered participants for a limited period following the session for review and to provide access to those with scheduling conflicts.


Kevin Burke was introduced to birding while taking an ornithology class and has been birding every day since. He has a degree in resource recreation and tourism from the University of Idaho and honed his birding skills teaching environmental education. Kevin has led birding trips across the country to Washington's San Juan Islands and Idaho's back country and abroad with trips to Portugal and Colombia. His lifelong journey has developed into a desire to share his knowledge and help others grow their skills.
