Spring means the return of birds and also the return of the Ottawa Bird Count‘s seven week course called “Chirps, tweets and trills 2015: Learn your local bird songs.”

Participants will learn to recognize the songs of the most common bird species in the Ottawa area. They’ll also find out “tips, tricks and technology” for learning bird sounds, and methods for monitoring bird activity in order to be able to participate in Ottawa Bird Count surveys.

People are welcome whether they’re new to bird identification or are experienced birders.

The course runs Saturday mornings from Apr. 11-May 30. It’s free, but you have to commit to doing all 14 hours of the course. There’ll be both indoor lessons and outdoor field work.

The course was extremely popular last year, so check it out soon.

Ottawa Bird Count is an environmental and educational charity that runs a volunteer-based bird survey in Ottawa, with the intention of making our city more bird-aware and more biodiverse.
