Bird Watching Project

Bird Watching

In this project we meet once per month and learn about bird watching. The first meeting will consist of birding 101, learning the basics of bird ID and how to make your own bird journal. All meetings thereafter will be observing birds in the wild. Please wearing hiking attire at meetings. There is not an age minimum for this project, however if the member is under the age of 8, please ensure an adult is able to help chaperone on hikes. If you are interested in joining this project, please fill out this google form. The meetings will likely be held on Sundays but are subject to change.

Project Leader

My name is Jenna Gerds and I'm the leader for both the veterinary science and bird watching projects. I started working in wildlife rehabilitation when I was 13, and the veterinary field when I was 16. I also graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Animal Biology, with emphasis in Wildlife Medicine. I currently work as a Veterinary Nurse in the Emergency and ICU departments. I began my 4H journey in this very same club many years prior, and now I have a niece just starting her journey! In my spare time I love to take hikes with both my piebald python (Cleopatra 🐍) and my 3-legged mutt (Westley 🐕 ).
