Birding by Habitat helps you determine what birds you are likely to see in an area. Birding by Ear helps to locate and identify the unique sounds of each bird. In this session, a variety of field techniques will be covered to help you increase your birding skills. We will travel to various habitats: scrub, pinelands, open field, shoreline, open water, wetlands, and roadsides to see the role of habitat in identification. Handouts will be distributed and discussed. Historically, this workshop averages 80 species with a high of 96 species for both days. Paddy Cunningham is a Naturalist, owner of Birding Adventures, and the Everglades Birding Festival Coordinator. Her motto is “You learn the ID,” and she excels in teaching birding skills in a non-intimidating field experience.
