This is a beginning to intermediate field-based birding workshop. The emphasis will be on identifying birds by sound, but of course we’ll see lots of birds, too. The workshop will include a hands-on bird banding demonstration on Saturday morning. All participants will receive a Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Eastern North America. Field trips will include Floracliff Nature Sanctuary and Taylor Fork Ecological Area in Madison County. This workshop is limited to 12 participants.
David Brown is an Associate Professor of Wildlife Ecology at Eastern Kentucky University. He teaches Field Ornithology and Wetland Wildlife Management. His research focuses on conservation and the winter ecology of migratory songbirds.
