Our Most Popular Presentations

Introduction to Birding
“Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Wait, no, it’s bird... a kinda grayish bird with legs and a maybe it has a head?” If this sounds like you, join Dee and David to learn the real basics of birding, starting with, “Why should I go birding?” and ending with a bird walk where we will start you on your life list.

Advanced Introduction to Birding
In this class,  David and Dee teach how to observe patterns in flight, song, and behavior to develop a more holistic approach to bird identification.

All About eBird
Have you ever wondered why some birders always have an iPhone? In this class David teaches you how and why you should be using eBird.

Introduction to Florida Spiders
Are you afraid of spiders? Attend this occasionally goofy, but scientifically accurate presentation to learn which (if any) Florida spiders you should be afraid of, and which spiders you should let become your close and personal friends. You will also learn a little about how spiders live and eat, their anatomy, and how to recognize a few common spider families.

Other Presentations We Deliver

Birding in Ecuador
In this talk we present photographs from our trip to Ecuador including some of the local art, the critters, and of course, many many birds.

Historic and Modern Birding in the Dry Tortugas
In this presentation, we introduce you to the birding mecca Dry Tortugas National Park. From their discovery in 1513 by Ponce de Leon, through the visit of naturalist John James Audubon in 1832, to the present, the Dry Tortugas have been known for their amazing richness in migrating land birds and vast seabird colonies. In this presentation, we share Audubon’s thoughts on some of the birds he encountered, and compare them to our slightly more modern take. If you ever wanted to know what Dry Tortugas birds are the tastiest, this presentation is for you (just FYI - the culinary tips come from Audubon’s thoughts, not ours!)

Identifying Birds by Silhouettes
Do you live in a world where the light is always perfect? Neither do we. That is why we created this class. Many times you just see the shape of a bird but the lighting leaves you wondering, "Was that a Cardinal or a Flamingo?" Learn what to look for in a bird silhouette to help narrow down the species when you can't use color to help. 

Migratory Birding Hot Spots
Do you want to know the best places to bird during migration? We offer customized birding classes based on the current season and your location. For example, we have taught this class for Fall in Fort Pierce, and Spring in Martin County.

Non-scientific Birding
Join Dee (known as “The Very Bad Birder”) to learn her utterly and profoundly unscientific methods for bird identification, including anthropomorphizing, comparing birds to cartoon characters, and when all else fails, making up huge lies. 

Pish-free Birding
In this field based class, David and Dee teach how to bird gently without using pishing, tapes or calls. 

PokemonGO Birding
Do you play Pokemon Go? Have you ever heard of birding? You might be surprised at how much the two have in common. Class includes a presentation followed by a PokemonGo/bird walk.

Taking a Peak at Bird Beaks
Using puppets, models and entertaining demonstrations, we answer all the questions you might have about bird beaks - What are they made of? How are they used? Did that bird just stick his tongue out at me? 

Sounds of the Night
Have you ever been awaken in the night by someone bellowing WHO COOKS FOR YOU? WHO COOKS FOR YOU? Well come out and join us for this talk as we tell you exactly who it is that cooks for you (that would be the barred owl). We will present photos and sounds of nocturnal birds. Depending on the location and time that we give this presentation, we can also bring along a back lit sheet to show you the kinds of bugs that are out there.
