No matter where you bird, the ability to identify species by ear will give you a deeper understanding of the avian community around you. In this two-day workshop, you'll learn the methods and resources for discerning bird vocalizations. On Friday evening, we'll review materials and techniques to connect sounds with images. In the field on Saturday, we'll practice what we've learned and discuss aids that will help you with bird sounds when you're on your own.

Instructions and Directions:

Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center. Bring a birding field guide for reference. For the field trip, wear warm clothing and waterproof shoes/boots, and bring snacks and binoculars.
