Birding by Ear Workshop at Bonneyville Mill

Just in time for spring, learn how to identify birds simply by sound! This workshop will explore the ways birds use sound to communicate and provide “ears-on” training for picking out and identifying their calls. The first part of the class will be an indoor presentation, followed by a 1½ hour bird hike where we will practice listening techniques and discover what birds we can find by using only our ears. All birding equipment will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, hiking shoes and dress for activities outdoors.
