Birding by Ear Registration Open - Indoor Session Part 1 of a 2-part series

Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired | Pheasant Branch Conservancy | Madison, WI 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
BIRDING BY EAR: LEARNING TO IDENTIFY BIRDS WITHOUT SIGHT. Just as unique as their coloration and shape, bird songs come in all tunes and pitches. Identifying birds by their song is an exciting activity and skill, and any experienced bird watcher will tell you that most birding is done without actually seeing the bird, but by hearing it. Particularly geared toward individuals who experience vision loss or impairment, this class teaches the techniques and songs for identifying birds by close listening. The first day will involve classroom-based learning, exploring the various songs of common bird species for June in Pheasant Branch Conservancy. The second day will take place at Pheasant Branch Conservancy, where a wide, flat, gravel/boardwalk path will take us through wooded habitat to practice our new-found skills. The outdoor portion of the class will offer sighted assistants at a 2:1 ratio to help participants safely maneuver through the park. Participants are encouraged to bring your own friends or loved ones to serve as your sighted guide instead; please indicate that in the registration form. Service animals are welcome, but please note that leashed dogs are also allowed in the park. Co-organized with the Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired Dates, times and locations: Indoor portion: June 2, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the conference room in the Wisconsin Council for the Blind and Visually Impaired (754 Williamson Street) Outdoor portion: June 16, 8:00-10:00 a.m., Pheasant Branch Conservancy, Marina Drive location* Registration fee: $20.00 per person | Taught by: Kerry Wilcox
