Join Audubon for an online, interactive course focused on recognizing birds by sound. The sheer volume of songs and calls can often feel overwhelming for birders, but these sounds offer an opportunity and a challenge. In this four-part series, birding expert Ken Elkins, Audubon Connecticut's Community Conservation Manager, will share how to better ID birds through their vocalizations. Each week, Ken will also guide you on a virtual journey through different habitat types—highlighting the birds who live there.
The four sessions will take place every Wednesday from May 13 thru June 3.
- Week 1 (May 13): Birds in Your Neighborhood or Local Park
- Week 2 (May 20): Forest Birds
- Week 3 (May 27): Birds of Grasslands and Shrublands
- Week 4 (June 3): Wetlands and Waterbirds
Upon registration, you will receive a link to login into the online classroom as well as material to download and print to follow along through the activities.
- Admission: $25 per person for the entire series
