ONLINE Course: Audubon at Home—Birding by Ear: The Simple Singers

Tufted titmouse

April 30, 2020 , 5:30 pm 6:00 pm

Pre-registration is required by 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 29th, and space is limited.

UPDATE: This course is now full. Check out our other upcoming courses here.

In response to social distancing and shelter-in-place rules for Alabama during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering free online courses as a public service to help folks continue to learn about the birds they love! While these will initially be offered for free, please support our work if you are able and make a tax-deductible donation at alaudubon.org/give. Please make sure to comply with all state and local social-distancing regulations. See our full COVID-19 statement here.

Join Paul H. Franklin and learn to identify birds by their songs. This session will concentrate on a group of songbirds whose typical vocalizations consist of relatively few notes, and those notes are delivered slowly enough that the listener can easily count them. Many if not most of these singers are present in the area now, which gives you the opportunity to try out the tools you’ll pick up in this session. This will be a fun introductory romp through the language of birds. A handout is available for download on the Adult Courses page here.

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on Thursday, April 30th, from 5:30–6 p.m. It will be a thirty-minute online class with ten minutes at the end for questions.
