Have you ever seen a bird and wondered what it was? Have you been trying to figure out who was singing outside? If so, this class is for you. Through interactive digital presentations, we will learn about typical New England backyard birds; their songs, behavior, feeding preferences and seasonal activity. You will learn methods to strengthen your identification and observation skills so you can appreciate wild, winged visitors even more. Topics include identification, birdsong, feeding birds, migration, other survival strategies and conservation.
