Winter Sparrows of the Upper Texas Coast – GCBO Course

Join GCBO on January 17, 19, and 21 2023  for an in-depth look at the fascinating and sometimes frustrating sparrows that inhabit our upper coast counties in the winter.  This course will be taught by board president Bob Friedrichs.  It will have two weekday evening classroom sessions via Zoom followed by a full-day field trip to coastal prairies, wetlands and woodlands to study these ‘little brown jobs’ and put into practice what we learned during the Zoom sessions (car caravan for convenient departures). You can expect to learn about 23 species of sparrows and their close cousins that occur annually in the Greater Houston area.

Each species account will include:

  • Identification basics with photo quizzes
  • Typical vocalizations
  • Breeding and wintering ranges, and the best local spots for each species
  • Habitat and diet information

The course includes:

  • Both classes and the field trip
  • Discount on Peterson’s “Reference Guide to Sparrows of North America”
  • Helping save birds, as the fee goes directly to supporting GCBO’s many conservation programs

Must be used January 17, 19, and 21 2023
