Warbler Guy, what's one quick tip to improve my birding by ear for warblers? Birding by ear tips you suggest to learn bird songs and bird calls?

Here's a fast relief pill to take online for learning wood-warbler songs:

Go to the following web site that's associated with the excellent new book titled
The Warbler Guide (by Scott Whittle and Tom Stephenson):

http://media2.macaulaylibrary.org/PMD/TWG/TheWarblerGuideAudioCompanion_Booklet.pdf

You may also wish to view:

thewarblerguide.com

and click on the "Companion Guide" button on the right side......Excellent information (!)



Otherwise, feel free to see my web site's home page and the "Birding Links" tab pulldown menu where a free handout titled "Top 10 Tips To Improving Your Birding By Ear" appears.

Happy spring and warbler hunting to all, Daniel

Warbler Guy, I heard International Migratory Bird Day is happening soon? Which date? Where in your area?




Tony, I think the best venue for our SF Bay area events related to this important day is the following:

International Migratory Bird Day is
Saturday, May 13....

Celebrate with us!!


Whether your favorite migrant is a tiny Rufous Hummingbird or a giant Sandhill Crane, we share your love!

Join us at the 2017 Birdathon Awards Celebration and raise a glass to all your favorite migrants.
(And heck, to our wonderful year-round resident birds too.)

Registration deadline is tomorrow, Tuesday, at midnight.



Saturday, May 13
3 to 6 p.m.
Oakland Hills




This is a wonderful afternoon for everyone, whether or not you went on a Birdathon trip. Meet rehabiliatrated raptors from Native Bird Connections; listen to live jazz by Berkeley High School musicians; view bird art; enjoy gourmet appetizers and boutique wines; mingle with old and new birding friends; cheer the winners of Birdathon 2017; and take home a special bird-themed gift! 

All in a stunning private garden with views across the Oakland Hills.
You have the option of supporting GGAS at a level of your choice, with ticket prices starting at $35. Ticket payments above $25 are considered a tax-deductible donation to Golden Gate Audubon Society.
