Birding by Ear with the Elkhart County Parks

Learn how to identify birds simply by ear. The workshop will cover quick tips on memorizing calls and how to train your ears to pick out the individual songs and calls of birds. In the second half of class, we will venture out on an 1½ hour bird hike to practice listening techniques and discover what birds we can find by using only our ears. All birding equipment will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, hiking shoes and dress for activities outdoors. Preregister by Friday April 6 at 4 p.m.
