Morning Bird Song Walks

Song Sparrow Singing.Develop and hone your ability to identify bird songs by making a commitment of one hour per week for the months of April and May. We focus on the songs of resident birds in April (e.g., song sparrow, spotted towhee) and then add in the songs of neo-tropical migrants as they arrive throughout May (e.g., lazuli bunting, Swainson’s thrush). We walk slowly, listen and discuss what we are hearing and finally, connect a bird’s name to its song. Repetition is the key to developing this skill! Bring binoculars and a field guide if you have them. We begin at 7 am and end around 8 am. You can depart anytime you need to.
