Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- As winter begins, turn your thoughts and attention to our local birds and join our winter workshop to prepare for fun spring bird watching.

Bird identification can be overwhelming, but learning only a few birds each week makes it fun and easy! Six weekly lessons or field trips given by master birder Sue Zelek on the key shapes, markings, habits, and songs for our most common local birds will make spring bird watching a snap! Price includes a Field Guide to Birds.

Sue Zelek, master birder and sometime Thorn Creek Naturalist is conducting a Bird Survey in Thorn Creek Woods Nature Preserve, identifying all the different species that inhabit and migrate through the woods.

Learn Your Birds by Spring workshop is offered on six Sundays, January 12 through February 16 at 1-3:30 p.m. and is open to those aged 11 and older. Registration and payment is required by Saturday, January 4. The fee for the full series is $50 and includes a Field Guide to Birds.

This program will be held indoors in an accessible facility. For the hikes, participants should be able to walk 1 mile outdoors on natural surface trails across uneven and possibly wet/muddy terrain.

Learn Your Birds by Spring is sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society.

For more information or to register for this program, contact Thorn Creek Nature Center, 247 Monee Rd, Park Forest, 708-747-6320, email [email protected]tcwoods.org or stop in the nature center between noon and 4 p.m. on Friday or Sunday. Three and a half miles of Thorn Creek trails are open daily from dawn to dusk.
