Slow Birding Field Session - The Nature Museum

  • The Nature Museum (map)

Join me for a Slow Birding Field session as we use some of the Bird Language techniques from the book What the Robin Knows by John Young and Dan Gardoquoi. 

We'll use a sit spot technique to both watch and listen to birds as a group. Learn about how to look both with and without binoculars, map what you're hearing and seeing, and take field notes which will improve not only your identification skills but your awareness of the what's happening on the landscape. 

Participants will learn techniques that they can apply while in the field birding or stepping right outside their door to the birds in their backyard. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather and for being still for a period of time, to bring a notebook, water and comfortable, portable chair or pad to sit on. 

Registration is required as space is limited. Suggested donation $20.
