Birding Basics: Making it Count (eBird intro)

Free

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next available session starts Feb 25, 2020 at 7 pm

FREE

Location: Gilsland Farm, Falmouth

To cap off our Birding Basics series, we are offering a free class to teach the basics of using eBird.org, a database for observations by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Through citizen science, many questions are being answered about even our most common birds, and participating in these projects is an easy way that you can 'give back' to the birds. We will also cover basics of contributing to the Maine Bird Atlas (maine.gov/birdatlas), so anyone interested in that project should attend as well!

Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary.  We will walk the property primarily looking for birds but won’t ignore any other wildlife or plants. Bring your binoculars and dress to be comfortable outside for two hours. Our total walk is usually 1.8 miles but people can leave early if needed.

We meet near the main parking lot. If you arrive late we are typically by the pond for the first 15-20 minutes before heading into the West Meadow. Walks last approximately 2 hours.

Are you curious about the lives of the birds around you? Have you ever wondered what they eat, where they rest at night or what they’re saying? This half-day field workshop is not a field identification walk - instead, it's a chance to slow down and connect with birds on a deeper level by building empathy & understanding. Designed for everyone - from novice to expert - Learning Bird Language is a refreshing take on connecting with birds. 

The program is led by international Bird Language expert Dan Gardoqui. Dan is the founder of Lead with Nature and has been teaching about birds & nature connection for over 25 years. He is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic naturalist and Registered Maine Guide.
