Event description

Description

(This event is part of a day of festivities locally, including Margaret Roach’s open garden in Copake Falls, cooking and flower-growing and arranging classes in Hillsdale, and a giant plant sale by Broken Arrow Nursery. Learn more.)

This hands-on walk and workshop (following a 9 AM talk you may wish to attend also!) will focus on finding and identifying birds in the field. Kathryn Schneider, past president of the NY State Ornithological Association and author of the new book “Birding the Hudson Valley,” will reveal how bird identification depends on noticing the clues that birds provide, even when we only see them for a few seconds.

Field marks are only part of the equation. Season, habitat, vocalizations, and behaviors all contribute important information. You will use these clues along with field guides and apps to learn how to identify the birds you see. Your observations will be recorded using the eBird mobile app. Participants should bring their binoculars and smart phones to the workshop, and have the free apps for eBird.org and Merlin on their phones before they arrive. Don't miss this chance to learn from one of our region's most experienced and enthsuiastic birders.

Registrants will be sent precise directions via email on where to meet in Copake Falls, NY, ahead of time.
