TWIN FALLS — The CSI Community Education Center will be offering “Raptor Identification” as taught by experienced birders from Prairie Falcon Audubon, Inc.

CSI classes are also being offered on past life research and explosion box albums.
Raptors are some of the easiest birds to view in Southern Idaho. They can be seen perched on wheel lines, power lines and poles, hunting low over farm fields, or soaring overhead throughout the year. In this course you will learn how to use their field markings, flight patterns, habitat selections and behaviors so that when you see a raptor, you’ll be able to confidently add it to your list. Participants will learn to identify eagles, falcons, buteos, accipiters, owls, turkey vultures and harriers during three classroom sessions and a Saturday field trip.
Students can register or learn more about this and other classes at csi.edu/communityed, by going to the CSI Community Education Center, or by calling 208-732-6442.
