Here's just a small sampling of some of the programs I've created. Feel free to reach out to me, I'm always game to create something new.


Presentations & Workshops

Bird Is a Verb

And it's time you get in on the action! Birding doesn't have to be hard, okay, it's a little bit hard. But in this presentation I'll break it down for you so you're ready to take on spring migration!

BIRDSONG TUNE-UP

Don't muddle your way through interpreting birdsong anymore! You'll be introduced to the five voices of songbirds and have your ears fine tuned to cheeps & chirps after this presentation.

Saving the bird in the bush

You love birds, so what are you doing about it? This presentation introduces birdscaping and goes beyond to look at how we care for our land when we keep birds in mind.

Owls of VERMONT

I've always said it, "I need to start charging each time people ask me to hoot like an owl." So no more freebies, but I promise lots of raucous fun with this presentation.

TIME TO FLY

Where did they all go and why? Is it even worth it to go birding after the fall migration? Um, YES! A perfectly autumnal presentation to get you inspired for birding during the fall and beyond.

APPs For Nature Geeks

Yeah, I know, you're supposed to unplug when you're outdoors. BUT, there are some great apps that can get you looking closer and paying it forward for birds & wildlife. Let me show you how to plug in for nature! This workshop can be tailored to your group's interests. eBird, iNaturalist & more!


In the Field

(YOU'RE-NOT-SO-BASIC) BIRD WALK

Sure, I'll lead a bird walk for you and your crew! But don't expect me to play the stereo-typical bird guide, it's about empowering you as a birder and having a damn good time while doing so.

UNRAVELING AVIANS

Less of a walk, more of an outdoor absorb. Inspired by Jon Young's work, we'll concentrate on bird behavior and communication. Every bird will become fascinating all over again.

For Landowners

Many landowners are interested in finding out what birds can be found on their property. Consider a site visit & follow up bird inventory to support managing your land for both you & the birds. 


Thank you for one of the best workshops on birding by ear last Saturday at the North Branch Nature Birdfest! It was well paced, fun and included elements of listening that I have easily incorporated into my daily birding life.

Dear Bridget
We had a wonderful time with you yesterday! I so appreciate your energy and good humor. I’ve watched hundreds of nature educators and you are tops because you blend captivating info with great animation and humor. You read the group well and crafted a workshop that flowed well and inspired us to really BE with nature. Thank you and enjoy all that spring drama!
Cheers, Jeanette

Your passion for birds is obvious — and it’s our mission to light the fire in others — someone like you can teach us, but also excite us, and then that grows into better stewardship of our resources. So, thank you for joining our mission. You get the important things across, but because you are having such fun doing it - making self-deprecatory remarks, taking risks, flaming a bit — or a lot! — one hardly knows they are being hooked. You have won new converts, which means we have as well. Teachers like you make our job easier — and we get the treat of seeing you, learning, and laughing as well.

With warmest thanks,
Libby & Peggy
