Winter Sparrow Workshop
Strawberry Plains 285 Plains Road, Holly Springs, MS 38635
Strawberry Plains Audubon Center is partnering with Delta Wind Birds (DWB) to
host two Winter Sparrow Workshops: January 31st in Oxford and March 7th at Strawberry Plains.
Both workshops will begin with an indoor session where key identification points will be highlighted
for wintering sparrows in our region. Participants will also learn important vocalizations for identifying
sparrow species wintering in Mississippi. An outdoor field session will follow, with Oxford participants
visiting the Sardis Waterfowl Refuge, and the SPAC participants utitilizing our property, as well as a visit to a
nearby, restorednative grassland in Hudsonville. Participants can expect to encounter up to seven species at
each workshop, including the elusive Le Conte's Sparrow. Please dress for the weather and remember to bring your binoculars.
The cost for each workshop is $30, with proceeds supporting DWB at the Oxford session, and
Strawberry Plains at the SPAC session. Lunch and educational materials will be provided at the SPAC workshop.
Spaces are limited. To register for the Oxford workshop, visit https://www.deltawindbirds.org/product/winter-sparrow-workshop/.
