Every spring and summer, a dazzling group of birds make their appearance in the Willamette Valley. Who are these wonderfully colored songbirds with beautiful songs? They are the wood-warblers with their distinctive vocalizations and fascinating natural history. They can be challenging to identify as they move quickly and elusively among the bramble giving us just a glimpse of their beauty. We will delve into each of these warblers that wonder about the Pacific Northwest at this time of year. We will take an in-depth look at how to identify these birds by sight and sound. We will also discuss where to find these gems.
As a bonus we will have a field trip to put your newly acquired knowledge to work in the field. Likely we will go to Minto-Brown Island Park or Fairview Wetlands. The trip will likely be scheduled a week from the webinar. Details will be provided during the webinar.
Note: We will follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration.
