Birding Basics Class (#1) Montpelier Vermont

Become a better birder! In this class, you'll develop a breadth of knowledge and skills to better appreciate Vermont's common and not-so-common birdlife. Identify species from sight and sound by scrutinizing field marks and decoding birdsong. Understand avian ecology and interpret behavior by exploring a wide range of habitats and natural communities. Participate in Vermont bird conservation by immersing in local avian research programs. Whether you are a backyard birdwatcher ready to expand your knowledge, or a passionate naturalist seeking a fun new approach to field ornithology, this course is the perfect primer for better birding in Vermont.

This course meets four times, for a total of 20 hours of instruction. Limited to 10 participants.

Class 1: Spring Sights and Songs
April 29th 06:30 - 11:00 AM

Our first class focuses on techniques for field identification by sight and sound. As we welcome early spring migratory songbirds back to the Green Mountains, we'll decipher how to use field marks, flight pattern, behavior, and habitat as clues to identification. We'll also explore different resources available for birders to learn and practice species identification.
