21 WOW Virtual Festival Finale - Duck, Duck, HUH?! The Brown Duck Challenge  
Meet at WCC:   5:00 PM  Return:   5:30 PM   

Winter is the classic time to get a friend interested in birding—the foliage is sparse, feeders are busy, and species diversity is manageably low. Best of all, there are plenty of big, colorful waterfowl to enjoy, making it easy for new birders to gain experience and confidence in identifying birds. Not all ducks are always so bright, though. Females, juveniles, and even adult males in their so-called “eclipse” plumage are, simply put, brown, and can puzzle experts and neophytes alike. But they don’t have to be so frustrating. Join Rick Wright for a richly illustrated look at the brown ducks and some of the ways to make their identification less challenging and more enjoyable.  Please note this presentation may extend past the 30 minute format.

Seminar Speaker: Rick Wright
