211 Learning to listen: Birding by ear for beginners
This is a field trip and workshop. We will sit and learn combined with walking and practice identifying birds by sound. We will develop listening skills while exploring a few different spots in Lee Vining Canyon. Lee Vining Creek drains from the high alpine mountains of Yosemite and Tioga Pass down through the canyon and out into the arid sagebrush scrub surrounding Mono Lake, offering breathtaking views as well as a wide variety of habitats and a diversity of bird sounds. The goal of this trip is to begin to identify common bird sounds, distinguish between some basic bird song patterns, introduce various ways to "see" a bird song, and link what you are hearing with what you see. Bring your notebook, pencil, binoculars, and ears. Remember to pack snacks, water, and sunscreen.
