The class will meet at the south end of NIC at Sandpoint at 9 a.m. on March 18.

It will last until about 3 p.m. and the cost is $49.

Winter Birding will focus on defining habitat, field identification, flight patterns and behavior of winter birds with the concentration on birds of prey, waterfowl, woodpeckers and songbirds.

“We’ll look at migrating and resident birds, and visit at least two optimum field sites in our area,” Baxter said. “Please come prepared with winter boots, snowshoes, warm layers, binoculars, spotting scopes, bird books, water, hot drinks and lunch.”

Baxter wrote the cover article in Sandpoint Magazine Winter 2017 entitled “Wings of Winter.”

He has degrees in both Forestry and Wildlife Management with more than 40 years of experience working in wildlife fields.

Research projects Baxter has been involved with focused on owls, goshawks, wolverines, Canadian lynx, grizzly bears, inland redband trout and North American badgers.
