Birding By Ear - Aton Forest

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

Join expert birders Bob Barbieri and Fran Zygmont (two separate dates) for a birding adventure through Aton Forest.

In these workshops you will learn to distinguish a variety of both breeding and migrant bird species by song and call. Though the programs focus on birding by ear, spring is a good time to see birds as well, before trees and shrubs fully leaf-out. Visual characteristics and behavior useful in identification will also be discussed.  A number of habitat types will be visited (old field, shrubland, mature forest, forested wetland, hayfield, and a beaver pond) so as to observe as many birds as possible.

Sat, May 6th with Bob Barbieri
