SA31 Birding by Ear Basics: Workshop & Field Trip – CLASSIC | 2023 | $15
Time - 7:00 am - 11:30 am
Trip Leader(s): David Juliano
Spend the first hour in a classroom, focusing on methods for identifying bird songs, then key in on several local species. The remainder will be spent traveling to different habitats to practice. Expertise is not required for this primer designed to get you started on this critical aspect of bird ID. The simple whistle of the Pacific-slope Flycatcher or the jumbled trill of the Pacific Wren are two of the redwood bird songs focused on. While at the Arcata Marsh, the Song Sparrow and chattering Marsh Wren will be heard. Once started on this skill, with David’s help, you will definitely finish this workshop with some new bird songs in your vocabulary. Prepare for forest trails, some hills, and flat marsh trails. Restrooms available. [NOTE: A more-advanced session on this topic will be held Sunday as event #SU61.]
MEETING LOCATION: Arcata Community Center Dining Room
