August 3: Bird Songs with Pat Lueders
Although you can’t use all five of your senses in birding, you can expand your skills to help you enjoy and identify the birds that surround you by learning how to recognize and identify bird vocalizations. Practice makes perfect and learning what types of things to listen for is step one. Join Pat as she goes through various Missouri bird songs and breaks them down with key identifying characteristics. Like having a sibling practicing Bach’s symphonies on a clarinet, eventually you’ll have those little tunes stuck in your head.
