Do you ever wonder about those colorful red or yellow birds in your patio? Want to know the difference between a warbler and a wren, a Kiskadee and a kingbird? Every bird we don’t know is a delightful mystery, and each provides clues to their identities with their colors, shapes, sizes and songs. Whether you are a novice birder, an old hand looking to brush up on our local birds, or simply curious about the birds you see in San Miguel, come and explore the many ways we can use our eyes and ears to identify them.

Birding 101 is the first of two birding presentations by Audubon that will help you get acquainted with our backyard birds and prepare you, if you are so inspired, to make a contribution to science by helping Audubon count birds for the Programa de Aves Urbana and for the Great Backyard Bird Count which takes place on Feb 12-15. These bird censuses will provide important data to scientists and will help Audubon develop strategies for reestablishing urban wildlife habitat, through our Nature in the City program, and to monitor our progress over time.

Signe Hammer leads birdwalks for Audubon and El Charco. She has been birding in and around San Miguel since 1995, and is thrilled to be able to share her fascination with birds.
