Bird Song ID Workshop – Identifying birds by sounds and spectrograms
Was that the drum of a Downy or a Hairy Woodpecker? Who is trilling over there? Did I just hear the call notes of a Ruby-crowned Kinglet or was it a Golden-crowned? Learning birds by ear can be challenging, but by learning their incredible and varied vocalizations one can truly take their birding game to the next level!
Biologists Kiirsti Owen and Colin Macfarlane will share tips and tricks for learning to recognize birds by their sounds. They will also cover topics in avian bioacoustics, including how to read spectrograms.
Kiirsti Owen and Colin Macfarlane are members of WildResearch and conducted this online workshop earlier this summer.
This presentation will be aired via Zoom videoconferencing. See https://naturevancouver.ca/zoom-videoconference-instructions/. On Monday Aug 31, Nature Vancouver members will receive the Zoom link in the weekly eNews. To join, click on that link after 5:30 pm. The talk will begin at 6 pm.
Please note that Kiirsti and Colin will be presenting from Nova Scotia, and due to the four hour time difference the start time has been moved ahead to 6:00pm.
