PROGRAM: “Holistic Bird Identification: A Case Study of Warblers”

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Geoff Williamson will equip us with a multifaceted approach to converting observation to identification. Identification involves more than just matching a bird to a depiction in a field guide or to a set of Internet photos. A more effective approach considers not only what the bird looks like, but also factors such as behavior, habitat, and vocalization. The warbler family provides an excellent opportunity to apply these tactics, helping you to improve your warbler – and other species – identification skills, just in time for migration.
