Learning Bird Song – Wednesday, September 16
Who’s that singing high up in the trees? From the nighttime trill of an Eastern Screech-owl, to the sweet notes of a White-throated Sparrow’s song, the sound of bird song and calls can be music to our ears! Birds use a variety of vocalizations to communicate, and you can learn to bird by ear and identify their songs, calls, and chirps. Birding by ear is a helpful skill for any birdwatcher to learn, and is especially useful during the summer and fall, when birds can be hard to spot in the trees. Learn how you can tune in to the avian orchestra in your backyard or favorite park!
