Francisco Kjolseth | Tribune file photo An American avocet hunts for food along the shores of the Lee Kay Ponds. Antelope Island State Park is offering an introductory class Saturday on basic bird watching.

Are you interested in birds? Don’t know much about them? But you want to know more?

Head for Antelope Island State Park on Saturday, where they’ll be teaching birding for the non-birder.

(People who love bird-watching talk that way.)

Join the park’s naturalist from 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, March. 3, and learn some birding basics. Bring your binoculars, if you have them. Meet at the visitors’ center, but be prepared to spend some time outside.

Regular admission prices apply, but there’s no additional fee for the fine, feathered event.

For more information, call (801) 721-9569.
