Event description

Description

Can you identify a singing bird that remains hidden from view? What Saskatchewan grassland bird has the longest continuous song display? Why do woodpeckers drum on trees and sometimes roof tops?

By attending the Birding by Ear workshop, a series of four 2-hour evening sessions, you will be able to answer these questions and:

  • identify songs and calls of 50+ bird species found in five major southern Saskatchewan habitats – native grasslands, agricultural fields, farmyards, wetlands, and urban forests; and

  • describe how and why birds sing as well as what other noises they use to communicate.

The four evening sessions will focus on listening for differences in bird songs and calls, the use of mnemonics, and visual learning using sonograms (i.e., from recordings of bird song) and get you ready for prime bird song season.

After finishing this workshop, you will be well prepared to help out with the Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas and recognize most birds around Regina without even seeing them! Heck, this might even get you a job some day (if knowing bird songs are part of the job requirement!).

Participants are expected to attend all four evening classes to get the most out of this workshop.

If you have any questions you can reach us at: birdingbyear.regina@gmail.com
