Birding 101: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Birds

By Signe Hammer, photo by Bob Graham

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 birds provide clues to their identities with their colors, shapes, sizes, and songs. Come and explore, through full-color photos and recorded songs of birds commonly found in and around San Miguel, the many ways we can use our eyes and ears to identify them.

Birding 101 is great preparation for the Great Backyard Bird Count, Feb 13-16. On those four days, birders will be counting the birds in their yards and local parks all over the world. Their information, submitted to the eBird online database maintained by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the US National Audubon Society, will help conservationists, biologists, and others better understand the health, distribution, and movements of bird populations around the globe. Audubon de México is joining in this wonderful exercise in citizen science, and welcomes the participation of residents and visitors alike. Come find out more on February 11! (Also see the announcement in this issue.)

This presentation is for anyone intrigued by those beautiful, interesting, sometimes funny creatures, birds—whether you’re a non-birder, a beginner, or an old hand. Signe Hammer leads bird walks 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.
