Steve Hale is back at the Newburyport Public Library with a virtual presentation for beginning and intermediate birders on Tuesday, October 19th at 7 pm with his program ‘Getting Started with Birdwatching’ (VIRTUAL*). This presentation provides valuable pointers, tips, and shortcuts for an interested person to quickly get the most out of birding and to become a skilled birder. Topics covered include binocular selection, field guide options (and how to use efficiently), best approaches to finding birds (where, when and how), and recommendations to heighten fun and lessen frustration for birders.
