Major topics covered in the class include a discussion of all the factors that can be used to identify birds; a review of birding tools, including binoculars and field guides; an introduction to birding terminology; some discussion of basic bird biology; and the basics of taxonomy and bird classification as they relate to identification. Some birding experience is recommended but not required.

Dr. Mills is a professional biologist with over fifty-five years of birding experience throughout the United States and in several other countries. He has previously taught a number of beginning and specialty birding classes, most recently for Black Hills and Seattle Audubon Societies. Since moving to Washington from Tucson, Arizona, in 1999, he has done a number of bird surveys at sea on NOAA ships and has been a trip leader for Westport Seabirds.
