Birding is the number one hobby in North America. As birders, we use many tools to help identify birds,
Such as field guides, internet sites, and song. We commonly look for characteristics that we see on a bird
Like the colour and patterns of feathers, how a bird flies, and the location of where the bird is found, in order
To make a positive identification.
This one-day workshop “Identifying Birds by Sight and Sound” will help you develop or enhance
Those skills needed for identifying the birds of Canada.
This workshop will be taught by ornithologist, Sherrene Kevan who has taught Ornithology for many years, and
Who owns her own company, Enviroquest Ltd. (see bi0).
