Birding by Ear: Bay Area Birds

Instructor: Jim Steele

Sequoia Audubon presents a great birding by ear opportunity!

This course, led by Jim Steele, will work on your song identification skills both in the field and through the use of recordings. Jim Steele has been involved in avian research using point counts for over 20 years, and has taught SFSU's Field Campus' popular birding by ear course for many years.


Throughout the class, you will be amazed at the tremendous abundance and diversity that you "see" with your ears but miss with your eyes. We will have two evening sessions in the classroom where we use field recordings to learn local birds and two weekend field trips to practice your skills.
