Spring migration is underway! Start tuning up your eyes and ears for the breeding season with the help of Audubon experts at this free indoor program for all ages and skill levels at the Lackawanna College Environmental Education Center in Moscow, PA on Sat., April 12 at 2pm.
Spring is the time to get out and connect with nature! As our summer migrants begin to return to their breeding grounds, it really helps if we can identify them not only by sight but also by sound. Spring is the best time of year to observe many birds and watch them singing because the foliage on the trees and shrubs has not reached full maturity. Once everything has leafed out, finding birds becomes much more difficult! It is at this point your efforts at learning to recognize birdsong pays off. The ability to identify birdsong is a key skill many birdwatchers rely on as it makes the sport of “birding” both more challenging and more rewarding.
We will present a program on bird identification, focusing on birds that can be found locally, using slides and sounds to describe the various forms of birdsong. We will share all about how birds form their songs and calls. We will also discuss the use of mobile birdsong “apps” in the field.
This program is for all ages and skill levels.
Our presenters are veteran birders who have contributed many hours and sightings to the recently published Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania.
When? Sat., April 12 at 2pm
