Just as unique as their coloration and shape, bird sounds 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.

This class teaches the tools and techniques for identifying birds by close listening (we don’t spend a lot of time memorizing particular bird songs). We welcome participants who are new to the hobby of birding by ear, as well as birders of any level interested in continuing to learn and practice their birding by ear skills. This class is for anyone interested in birding by ear, of all physical abilities, ages, and birding skills. For more information about this event, visit the Southern Wisconsin Bird Alliance’s event web page.

Registration for this event is required. The registration fee is $20/person. Enrollment will be capped at 25 individuals.

This event is co-organized by the Southern Wisconsin Bird Alliance, the Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired, and Aldo Leopold Nature Center.
