Birding By Ear

September 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Instructor: Denise Wight
6 sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays
Venue: Zoom plus field trips

Autumn is a great time to start slow and learn some of our local bird sounds.  This class will introduce you to 20 common birds found in the East Bay in fall. We will cover a wide variety of techniques used for learning bird sounds, as well as prepare and review bird sounds we might expect on each location. Field trip will focus on all the bird sounds we hear as well visual important visual comparisons.
