Have you ever seen a glimpse of the underside of a warbler and not known what to think? Warblers can be very challenging to identify. They appear in a variety of plumages and can be so active that it is hard to get a good look. Learn to quickly identify warblers from various viewpoints by piecing together diagnostic features. When you leave this class you should be able to tell the difference between the most common warblers in Texas. The class will use extensive photos and videos to illustrate multiple viewing angles and song files to hone your ear. Then we will practice our skills in the field. The class is being taught again by Doug Booher and Amy Bishop.
There will be three evening classes on Tuesdays, Apr. 23, 30 and May 7 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. We will take a road trip to High Island, the legendary destination for spring migration and warblers, on Apr. 27-28. We will be there during the peak spring migration season! Two local field trips will also be held on May 4 and May 11.
The tuition for the class is $70 for members of Travis Audubon Society and $100 for non-members. The class will be taught at a central Austin location, with more specific information provided at registration.
