Spotlight on Birding by Ear

Bird vocalizations offer a whole new dimension to finding birds and identifying them! Join Justin to learn the basics of ‘birding by ear’. He will share some techniques to get our ears and minds attuned to bird sounds. We’ll then perform some fun exercises together to put our skills to the test. Program provided by Quest Nature Tours.
