SORRY, THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
Just in time for their spring arrival, Maine Audubon’s Staff Naturalist Doug Hitchcox will hold a two hour workshop to teach you various techniques for identifying the gems of our forest: warblers. We will look at the diversity of the family, keys for identifying each species, and even spend time learning the songs and auditory cues to take your birding to the next level. The workshop will be held in the Mather Auditorium at the Wells Reserve on Friday, April 24th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Friday evening workshop will be followed by an ID walk and review on Sunday morning, April 26th from 7 a.m. till 10 a.m., also at the Wells Reserve.
An enthusiastic birder, Doug set the Big Year record for Maine birds with 314 species in 2011. In his spare time, he also runs the Maine-birds listserv, serves as Secretary of the Maine Bird Records Committee and is one of Maine’s eBird reviewers.
Space is limited and advance registration (via this website) is required. Fee of $10 is payable by cash or check at the Friday evening workshop.
