Learn to bird by earWritten by Admin
Two birding events in the region, sponsored by the Great Smoky Mountains Audubon Society, are on the horizon.
The other workshop is a birding by ear workshop from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Friday, May 11, at the Balsam Community Center with a field trip at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 12. There are no easy tricks to learning bird songs, but there are magical methods, aids and practice that enable a new birder to conquer those troubling warbles, squeaks and chips.
Georgann Schmalz will be the instructor. The cost is $35.
