Join Michele Grzenda for Beginning Backyard Bird Song and sign up for our Birding Trips.

Beginning Backyard Bird Song

Birdsong identification is a lot like learning a foreign language. You start with a few basic bird songs as a reference, then add to your repertoire by repetition and practice. Learn the types of sounds birds make, and why they make them. Unlock the key to “mnemonics” memorization techniques. The classes will explore common bird songs heard in Massachusetts and techniques used to remember them. Each class will focus on approximately 10-15 birds. Ample time will be spent listening to each bird song, finding ways to remember it, and putting several different bird songs together for comparison. Please bring a notebook, pen, and bird book if you have one.

Register now for class on Wednesdays, May 15 & 22 from 7-9 pm
