Birding By Ear
Have you ever awoken to the song of a bird, and wondered what bird could possibly sing so beautifully?  This fun and dynamic talk will identify which songs are associated with a particular song bird.  Examples through recorded bird songs will be used to demonstrate which song is associated with a given bird, as well as the behavior and habitat of that bird!   The class will be divided between in-class time and study in the field, so please dress accordingly.
