Finding and Identifying the Crown Jewels of Spring & Entering Sightings into eBird

Screen Shot 2017-03-26 at 1.30.26 PM

Join regional birding experts for a Saturday workshop designed to enrich your experience with warblers this season. We’ll cover identification, song, resources and conservation INDOORS in the morning with Kevin Griffith, then head OUTDOORS with Kimberly Sucy and other leaders for a walk.

This will be followed by another INDOOR session in the afternoon on how to use and understand eBird with Dave Spier, Bob Spahn and other experts.

You will get the most out of the workshop by planning to spend the whole day with us but we welcome you if you can only come for part of the day.  Bringing your fully charged electronic device to the eBird session will allow for a ‘hands on’ experience or you can just watch the instructor in the afternoon.

Participants are  invited to join RBA field trips to a variety of wonderful warbler habitat led by skilled trip leaders throughout May.
