The Birds of Whidbey Class of 2012 – 2013 completed the course in May with a final field trip and potluck. Seventeen residents of Whidbey Island are now more knowledgeable about local birds and the best birding areas. From all habitats and seasons, the students were presented with excellent photos and informative lectures by some of Whidbey Audubon’s best birders who shared their passion.
