More than 30 warbler species pass through Massachusetts during spring migration, with more than 20 breeding here. With bright, cheerful plumage, they are the highlight of spring birding trips. However, identification can be challenging due to the sheer number of plumage patterns and fleeting glances, often of their underside. This series will introduce you to available resources, provide a logical framework for ID, and offer tips on making the most of quick, limited views. You'll review habitat preferences and listen to the songs of the most common species as an aid to identification.
In addition to 2 Friday content sessions, there will also be 2 optional homework review sessions 1 week after each content presentation.
Presenters: Kathy Seymour, bird and nature lover who has been leading bird trips, teaching classes, and conducting bird banding research at Drumlin Farm for over 15 years. Jane Sender, an avid birder who enjoys teaching others about birds and co-leading bird trips with Kathy for Drumlin Farm.
