Fall Webinar Series: Shorebird Identification

Eastern Ontario Birders:

I am happy to announce that I have produced a Shorebird Identification webinar. The webinar is 2hr15min long and will provide birders with tips, tricks and suggestions in order to identify this somewhat daunting group of birds. Additionally, I will share with you the best birding sites within eastern Ontario to visit, as well as useful gear considerations. For this webinar, you will follow along with your field guide(s) as I discuss the ID of most of the species we’d expect to see in our area. I will also provide the approximate migration window for each species, as well as their status within eastern Ontario (i.e., common, uncommon, scarce, rare, very rare, etc.) I will move slowly through the material, and pause 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) when discussing shorebird ID.

The cost for this webinar is $25. The webinar will be available by way of an unlisted (not publicly viewable) video link, sent to your email. You’ll be able to view, pause, and rewind the video to your liking. It will be available indefinitely, after the original airing date.

To purchase this webinar, please send me an email at eontbird@gmail.com. Payment via e-transfer to eontbird@gmail.com can be sent at the same time. I will send the unlisted video link to your email once payment has been received–thank you!
