New to birding by ear or never thought you’d be able to learn bird calls? Are you wondering what songs, calls, and other sounds can reveal about what’s happening amongst and around birds, and how can this enrich our human experience in nature? During this class David will cover techniques for learning bird vocalizations, regional variations and other challenges, and how to continue learning about bird songs beyond the classroom. The class, including field trips, spans the length of the spring migration season so that students have time to learn the vocalizations of residents and migrants, and provides time for practice and asking questions.
