Learn about sparrows from Tom Gaskill, who has been working with them for decades and loves them more than any other group of wild birds. In this program, we will take the mystery and anxiety out of identifying them. We will have an evening session in the classroom to learn about sparrow ecology and identification. Then, we will take a morning field trip to Rio Salado Restoration area during spring sparrow migration when there should be a diverse collection of sparrows in fine plumage singing brightly. Students are encouraged to bring their binoculars. Transportation to the field trip site is not provided.
