About the event
Birds are perhaps the most visible and vocal of our non-human relatives, and each of their songs tell a story. The seemingly random noises that birds make are specific vocalizations, each with their own unique meaning, and knowledge of birdsong and bird behavior has provided vital information for humans since time immemorial. Bird-watching continues to contribute to a deeper understanding and sense of place for the modern naturalist.
Learn how to find and identify birds in the winter! Some birds migrate south for the winter, but many do not. We’ll cover the basics of key identifying characteristics like shape, size and color, habitat, flight and behavioral patterns, tracks, songs and sounds. Dress warm! We’ll have a few pairs of binoculars to share, but you should bring your own if you have them.
