About this event


Songbirds are the interconnected eyes and ears of our ecosystems. Participants will learn how to interpret the secret world of their language to understand and connect more deeply with the wild world around them. Take the simple skills you learn in this class to start listening in on wild conversations right away in your back yard, your neighborhood, the wilderness, anywhere you go outside. No previous birding experience required. This class will be held outdoors, masks and safe physical distancing are required.

WHAT: Learn the most common voices and alarm patterns of songbirds and how to interpret them to discover what’s happening in the ecosystem around you.
