EVENT - Birding By Ear: Resident Birds of Port Moody (Webinar)

Date: Thursday, February 15, 2024 
Time: 6:00pm-7:30pm
Location: Online

In late winter and early spring, local songbirds begin to sing, making it a perfect time to dive into birding-by-ear when there are fewer birds singing all at once. Attend this webinar for an introduction to identifying birds by their voices and come away with a new appreciation for the many voices around you and many tips for telling them apart. Song Sparrow, Bewick's Wren, Spotted Towhee and more will be covered. Join the City of Port Moody and longtime birder Laura Whittemore for this FREE webinar.

This webinar will be hosted on Zoom and is open to all ages and birders of all levels. It is also a great opportunity to prepare yourself for the annual global Great Backyard Bird Count (February 16-19). The Zoom link will be provided to registrants prior to the webinar. If you do not receive an email with the Zoom link by the day of the webinar, please email environment@portmoody.ca or phone 604-469-4628 and we will ensure to provide you with the link.
