There's a lot to look forward to in spring, including the welcomed hullabaloo of birdsong. The sheer volume of songs and calls can often feel overwhelming for birders, but these sounds offer an opportunity and a challenge. Join Bent of the River Audubon Center for a new four-part online series designed to help you build your birding skills—and love of birds—by learning how to bird by ear. We’ll begin by becoming familiar with neighborhood voices, distinctive migrant songs, and the wonders of nature's lesser-known musicians: frogs, toads, mammals, and stridulating insects.
The four sessions will take place on Wednesdays: April 7, April 14, April 28, and May 5.
- Program Fee: $25 per person for the entire series
- Pre-registration is required
