Be a Superlative Birder!

Let's meet our feathered friends! Join science poet Leslie Bulion for a poetic introduction to bird-watching, with tips for how to find birds right outside your own windows. A birding workshop tailored to your area for up to 8 attendees.

45 Minute Program



Birding is a SUPERLATIVE activity for explorers of all ages. When I took a closer look at our feathered friends in order to research my science poetry collection SUPERLATIVE BIRDS, I learned all kinds of tips and tricks to help me become a better birder. I'm still learning, and I'd love to share what I'm learning with you!

In this workshop, we'll examine photos and other media to discover great birding clues new birders can use right away. Together we'll test-drive a some wonderful resources that can help you learn about the birds you might meet at a park, woodland, or field near you.

I'll also share fun poems birder-readers can use as models to create their own superlative bird poetry after our session.

For schools, libraries, and larger group programs please see "Virtual Visits" listings on Leslie's website.
