This SEVA workshopcosponsored with the John Burroughs Natural History Society, will introduce various aspects of the ever-growing interest in birding. Once referred to as birdwatching, birding is an activity that is both challenging as a personal “sport” and a mode of grounding one’s spirit with nature.

Activities will include: 1) A short presentation on the diversity of birds, birding equipment, resources, and tips. 2) A discussion of eBird and citizen science, including the 3rd New York State Breeding Bird Atlas. 3) Time spent in the field birding around the campus of the school.

Six pairs of binoculars will be available to borrow care of the John Burroughs Natural History Society.


Presenter: Dixon Onderdonk is a retired Kingston HS Biology teacher.  Due to his passion for birds, especially raptors, since childhood, he became a serious birder after retirement, and has explored many areas in the US and abroad. Dixon is a trustee of the John Burroughs Natural History Society and board member of the Friends of Forsyth Nature Center in Kingston.
