Into birding but the songs have you stumped? Whether you are new to learning bird sounds or you want a good refresher before the Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas starts this spring, this course is for you.
Join Chris Earley, Arboretum Interpretive Biologist and author of five bird field guides, for a series of eight virtual noon-hour lectures that cover more than 150 bird species! We will focus on songs and some common, distinctive calls and will apply different methods to remember them. Each course will start with a short intro topic about birding-by-ear before we dive into the bird species. Learn how to make your own calls, read a sonogram, make up your own memorable bird song sayings and more! Each class will finish with a 10-15 minute discussion period so you can ask all your bird-related questions.
See the descriptions below to find out which bird groups are covered in each class. Each workshop is recorded and made available for a limited time after the series has ended for registered participants.
Fee: $8 (plus HST) per session, or register for all eight workshops at once and get one free (pay $56 instead of $64!) Register early to ensure your spot!
