Birding with Bernie Master- February 4 & March 11


Ovenbird, Corkscrew





Bernard Master is an avid hiker of the CREW Trails, a phenomenal birder, a great educator and one of our most popular Strolling Science seminar leaders.

Due to popular demand, Bernie will be leading two hikes at the CREW Trails, scheduled for February 4 and March 11 at 8 a.m. at Bird Rookery Swamp.

Guests will learn about our winter resident birds that use Southwest Florida’s valuable habitat and why. They’ll have a chance to see early songbird migrants, learn their songs and how songs are used in population counts. Bernie will also introduce guests to how CREW biologists measure populations of breeding birds and lead hikers in a bird count activity.

An internationally recognized conservationist, Dr. Bernie Master has a Birding Life List that includes over three-quarters of the world’s bird species, in excess of 7,700 birds. He is the first American to see a representative of every bird family in the world. He was honored by HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands for his contribution to conservation.  A previously unrecorded song bird in Colombia, Vireo masteri, the Choco Vireo, is named for Master’s family and the discovery was published in IBIS in October, 1996.

Don’t miss this chance to learn from the internationally known ornithologist Bernie Master. Tickets are available at; reservations are limited and required.
