Bird Songs Workshop

3 Saturdays: June 3rd, 10th, and 17th from 8am – 12pm

In this 3-part workshop (June 3rd, 10th, and 17th) led by Julia Siporin and Becky Uhler, learn how to identify and better understand local birds by their songs and calls. We’ll help participants recognize our common (and uncommon) avian friends’ vocalizations, and also share many tools for continuing to learn on your own. Each four-hour session in this three-part series will mix classroom time – in which we talk about bird sounds, listen to sample recordings together, and explore other learning tools – with time outdoors listening to the birds we are learning about. Julia co-leads the Arboretum’s monthly bird walks.  Julia and Becky have been exploring the world of bird vocalizations for about seven years, and have been birdwatching for many more. Pre-registration required.  $40 Members, $50 Non-Members.
