Hear how the birds, on every blooming spray, with joyous music wake the dawning day.
-Alexander Pope
 
The Well’s gorgeous landscape provides the perfect habitat for a beautiful and diverse community of birds. Join us as we celebrate the arrival of spring by tuning into the sights and sounds of our feathered friends. Being aware of the rich bird life around us can greatly enrich our time on the land during retreat. 

The afternoon begins as we learn to identify our resident birds by sound and sight. We will then go out individually on the property to enjoy time listening and watching for the birds. The group will reconvene briefly before room-check-in and join in community for dinner.  Following the evening meal, we will walk the labyrinth together, listening to day's-end bird songs as the sun goes down. After an evening of restful sleep, participants will rise early (grab a cup of coffee or tea) and settle into a porch rocker to watch the sun rise and listen to the bird world waking up. Following will be time on your own for breakfast, with a closing group session from 9:00-10:00 a.m.
 
The overnight stay and lunch the following day are included in your workshop reservation.  Please note; call to confirm your class registration has been received by the office to reserve your room.  Those wishing to stay more than one night can make their request at this time.  
 
Participants may bring binoculars, bird guides and song identification apps but this is not required. And no prior birding experience is necessary.
 
Jane Motsinger, staff member at Well of Mercy and avid bird watcher will lead this birding adventure.
