Birding 101 Workshop

RECAP: BIRDING 101 WORKSHOP

A huge THANK YOU to John Parke of the NJ Audubon Society for an amazing class on beginner birding! Thank you also to all those in attendance.

Some helpful tips from the workshop:

  • Equipment: Good pair of binoculars & a field guide with range maps and descriptions, not just pictures
  • Shapes: Get familiar with silhouettes & shapes-wings, beaks & tails
  • Size it up - compare size of bird to something you know
  • Some things don't change – Shape of beaks and feet dictate food and habitat
  • Look for certain colors & patterns – color around the eyes/on the wings, patterns in the wing/on the tail, behavior patterns and habitat.

Pick up a free birding trail maps at the Liberty municipal building. Happy Birding!
