Good Looking: How to get better views of birds
One of the most satisfying aspects of bird watching is getting a good close view of a wild bird, one that allows you to study plumage features, observe behavior or simply enjoy the aesthetic experience. Try as we may, getting close to birds is not so easy. Binoculars and spotting scopes help and most birders know not to wear white in the field but what are some other ways to improve your chances of getting a prolonged, satisfying view of a bird? This program will focus on "Fieldcraft", the field practices and specialist skills for observing birds at close range. Techniques intended to advance birding proficiency and get those killer views will be revealed with the goal of raising gratification and lowering frustration that can accompany our favorite pursuit.
Presenter Gina Nichol has been a naturalist and birder for more than thirty years, She first became fascinated with the natural world in rural upstate New York where she spent most of her childhood out of doors. Through her company, Sunrise Birding, Nichol offers tours, workshops, and lectures that reveal the wonder of the natural world.
