Many of us cannot identify a bird that we hear but don’t see. To help, Bitterroot Audubon Society is offering a Birding-by-Ear Workshop, consisting of an evening class and one of three morning field trips. The evening workshop will take place on Friday, June 16, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge's Visitor Center (4567 Wildfowl Ln, Stevensville). Two field trips, one led by Sherry Ritter and one by Deb Goslin, will take place on Saturday, June 17, from 7:00-9:30 a.m. in the Stevensville area. An additional field trip will be offered by Sherry, on Monday, June 19, from 7:00- 9:30 a.m. in the Hamilton area. Birders of all skill levels are welcome at the evening workshop, but the field trips are best suited for those who can identify common birds of the area, such as red-winged blackbirds, common ravens, northern flickers, black-capped chickadees, nuthatches, tree swallows, and downy woodpeckers.While there is no limit to the number who canattend the evening workshop, the field trips are limited to 8 participants each, so register early! Please register for only one field trip so that as many people as possible can go out with our experienced leaders.
