Bird watching can be frustrating – some days you’re lucky if you get to “watch” a single bird. Don’t throw down your binoculars in despair! Birds don’t usually want to be seen, but they do make a lot of noise. In this class, you’ll learn the basics of birding by ear. Get tips for committing songs and calls to memory while we practice on three local species (Northern Cardinal, Downy Woodpecker, and Tufted Titmouse). Learn how to look for good recordings to practice with and how to apply your knowledge in the field. Finally, we’ll go on a walk to listen for birds.
