How to Bird Like the Experts
Field Trip with Kevin Karlson

April 18 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Come along as Kevin combines the traditional field mark approach to ID with a more holistic one that incorporates physical features and behavior to reach a more complete ID picture. Most of the expert guides use this combined approach on a regular basis, and you too can improve your field skills by employing this technique. This approach concentrates initially on the relative size, shape, structure and behavior of every bird, and then fills in the blanks using conventional field marks and details. Come and experience a different way of identifying and looking at birds, with an emphasis on having fun and sharing with others. Kevin’s book “Birding by Impression: A Different Approach to Knowing and Identifying Birds” was released in 2015 and covers this exciting ID technique in detail.
