The Birding Club of Costa Rica invites those who would like to learn about birds, binoculars and birding to an introductory session Jan. 17 at 7 a.m. by the pond on the University of Peace grounds in Ciudad Colón, southwest of San José.
After a coffee and muffin break at 8:30 a.m., club members will help newcomers practice birding on the university’s grounds. Birding guide Patrick O’Donnell will conduct the course. A gourmet barbecue will follow at 11:30 a.m. at a nearby farm.
The cost for the course and barbecue is $20 (cash bar). Bring a notepad, binoculars and good walking shoes. To reserve, contact Lyn Statten by Jan. 10 at 2282-1146 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
