Topic: The workshop will present a variety of birds up close and personal, Slater Museum specimens that can be examined and rendered into art. The museum has skins, wings, skeletons, and eggs of just about all Pacific Northwest birds, so feel free to make requests. After lunch we will go out in the field to Titlow Beach to see what birds we can find. There should be a variety of waterfowl (wigeons, scoters, mergansers, Buffleheads), gulls and other seabirds (grebes, guillemots) and as many small land birds (sparrows, wrens, thrushes) as we can find in the woods there.
