Better Birding Skills Workshops

Better Birding Skills Workshops are designed to help birders acquire new skills to improve their ability to identify birds in the field. Workshops begin with a "classroom" session via Zoom and follow up field experiences to practice what is learned in the classroom. Look for BBS Workshops in the calendar of events to sign up.

Bird Bombs

Bird Bombs are short blasts of bird identification information designed to help you be a better birder. They drop via Zoom about twice a month and are free and open to the public. Find them on the list of Upcoming Programs wherever you see the label BIRD BOMBS before the title. Past Bird Bombs recordings can be found on the Past Programs page in order by date.
