WILDLIFE WATCHING -- North Idaho College at Sandpoint is offering a “Birds of Prey” class taught by ornithologist and author Brian Baxter on Saturday, March 14.

The class starts at 9 a.m. with a short review in the classroom on families, distinguishing characteristics and birding tips. Two field trips will follow to study habitats, tracks, migrations and observe birds of prey.

Baxter has degrees in both forestry and wildlife biology, and has been teaching outdoor education programs for more than 20 years.
