Just in time for their spring arrival, Maine Audubon’s Staff Naturalist Doug Hitchcox will hold a 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 tothe next level. The workshop will be held at the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust on Saturday, May 13th. We’ll meet at KCT at 6:30 am for an early morning bird walk, followed by the workshop itself. A second walk will follow after lunch (please bring your lunch).
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 on the Maine Bird Records Committee and is one of Maine’s eBird reviewers. (Photo of Doug by M. Kathleen Kelly)
