Most workshops run from 10 AM to 5 PM both days.
All working spot participants work with a partner.
All workshops follow the structure of lecture or hands on time with the birds with a ten minute break every hour.
Mid day we break for an hour lunch, depending on the venue there may be catering.
At the end of both days there is a scheduled discussion/Q&A session.
Short training sessions:
Hands on physical skills games; 2 minute bursts of the games to teach or sharpen your clicker skills.
Hands on working with the birds; 1 minute of partner discussion on the training plan for the upcoming session with bird A, 2 timed minutes of work with bird A, then 2 minutes split; 1 minute for discussion of how that session with bird A went and then the second minute is for partner discussion on the training plan for the upcoming session with bird B and repeat.
