Tune Up: Birdsongs and Bird Behavior of the Roaring Fork Valley
Name: Tune Up: Birdsongs and Bird Behavior of the Roaring Fork Valley
Date: June 29, 2019 - June 30, 2019
In this course we will tune into what birds are saying with an emphasis of learning how to describe and visualize bird songs and calls to become better at “birding by ear.” We will also scrutinize what birds are doing and try to figure out why they are doing it. Our path to improving these birding dimensions will include extended field sessions in various Roaring Fork Valley habitats punctuated by short lectures, discussions, and activities. This class requires advance registration to ensure appropriate planning for the field experience. Come prepared for a full day in the field, including non-strenuous hiking on and off trails. Bring your binoculars (or borrow ours) and your field guide (optional). We will provide binoculars, a scope, reference books, and handouts.
