About this workshop:
With lots of bird song and activity in the air, spring is a great time to practice your birding skills. Sponsored by Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT), join Todd Kelley at HCT’s largest preserve (66-acre Robert F. Smith Cold Brook Preserve, Harwich Port) in a “Birding for Beginners” workshop along HCT’s Bluebird Trail of nestboxes that host bluebirds, tree swallows, and other songbird species. Learn how to recognize and identify birds by sight and sound. Distinguish telltale field marks such as the size and shape of their bills, body size, wing shape, flight patterns, and general behavior as well as their plumage. Also learn to decipher the habitats that particular birds prefer as Todd teaches how to interpret bird tracks and sign.
