Taking field notes and sketching allows you to slow down and really study birds. On these very special trips, Kelly will help participants enhance their appreciation and understanding of the shape, plumage, field marks, and fine details of birds by learning fabulous field notes and sketching techniques. Kelly will show you how to sharpen your observation skills so you can create memorable field sketches to include in a nature journal. You don’t have to be an expert artist to start field sketching or nature journaling. Observation and simple drawing techniques can help you capture fast-moving birds using pencil on paper. These techniques not only help with bird identification, they also help create memories that go deeper than a photo.
