Strengthen your observational skills through both visual and auditory practices introduced through five nature journaling techniques then practice these new skills in the field to help reinforce what’s been learned.
In both the morning and afternoon classes, Jungbluth will cover the following techniques:
Bird Sit. Enjoy a relaxing and engaging connection to birds and nature while fine-tuning your senses and recording your experience.
Field Marks. Practice field marks and feather patterns before going outside to help with bird identification, then learn how to record field marks and feather patterns while outside.
Listing. Explore the benefits of creating different types of bird lists including backyard bird lists, travel lists and eBird lists.
