Spend the first hour in a classroom (meet in the banquet/classroom at the Community Center) 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 Marsh, the Song Sparrow and chattering Marsh Wren will be heard. Once started on this skill with Dave’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 are available at the Community Center and at the Arcata Marsh. This trip will not stop for food. Please reference event #SU75 on Sunday for a follow up course to this event.


This event is fully booked.
