Birding By Ear
Most birds are not known for sitting still. By learning to recognize their songs, calls and the habitats they live in, you can have a satisfying birding experience every time you step outdoors, with or without your binoculars! In this one-day workshop we’ll travel to various habitats and birding hotspots in Cook County, listening and watching for spring migrants. Ann will share tips and tricks for remembering bird songs. Bring your binoculars, but be prepared to listen to the birds. (photo by David Brislance)
