Into birding but songs have you stumped? Join Chris Earley, Arboretum Interpretive Biologist and author of five bird field guides, for a series of eight virtual noon-hour lectures to cover over 150 bird species! We will focus on songs and some common, distinctive calls and will apply different methods to remember them. Each course will start with a short intro topic about birding by ear before we dive into the bird species. Learn how to make your own calls, read a sonogram, make up your own memorable bird song sayings and more! We will finish each class with a 10-15 minute discussion period so you can ask all your bird-related questions. The course is suitable for those new to learning bird sounds as well as the more experienced.

You can sign up for individual courses for $8 (plus tax) each or take all eight at the discounted cost of $56 (plus tax – that’s eight courses for the price of seven!). See below to find out what bird groups are covered in each class. And don’t worry – if you miss one or this time doesn’t work for you, you will be sent recorded programs afterwards and will have access to them for a month after the whole series. For those that take the whole course, we will also be making the videos available again for a couple of weeks in April so you can review them just before the peak of spring singing occurs!

Fee: $8 (plus HST) per person, per session or book all 8 in one transaction and get one free ($56 plus HST instead of $64 plus HST).
