Flycatcher Identification Essentials

Eastern Ontario Birders:

I am happy to announce that I will be availing a Flycatcher Identification Essentials webinar. This webinar will provide birders with tips, tricks and suggestions in regards identifying these difficult-to-ID birds! I will also cover the fall migration timing for each species. Flycatcher ID is subtle and involves training one’s eye to focus on key details. With practice, flycatcher ID will not be anywhere near as daunting as it once was! For this webinar, you will follow along with your field guide(s) as I discuss the ID of each species. What I will endeavour to do is simplify difficult ID’s by suggesting what to focus on in the form of a primary and secondary identifier index. I will move slowly through my material, and pause for 30 seconds after each species’ overview, to give you time to type/write information. A lot of what can be conveyed comes down to impressions from time spent in the field with these difficult bird groups. I will do my best to add my own personal touch (vs. regurgitate what is written in field guides).

The cost for each tutorial is $25 per person.

The webinar will be available by way of unlisted (not publicly viewable) video link, sent to your email. You’ll be able to view, pause, rewind the video to your liking. It will be available indefinitely, after the original airing date of July 28th, 2021!

Payment is made via e-transfer to this email address.
