Bird Identification Workshop

Join Judith Walker of the Mecklenburg Audubon Society!
Birds are everywhere. There are probably 20-30 species that visit your yard regularly depending on the time of the year. How many can you identify by sight? by sound? We will start the day learning some basic skills for identifying birds in the neighborhood including how to use binoculars. Then we will take a quick stroll around the gardens to see what we can find. Back in the classroom we will have a brief introduction to avian biology and the families regularly found in the Carolinas. Since birds are often heard before they are seen, learning basic songs of common birds can be challenging but very rewarding. We’ll see how many you already know and learn a few new ones. Finally, you’ll learn how to become a community scientist with tools and programs developed by the National Audubon Society and Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology.
