Workshop description:
A common obstacle for a lot of bird recorders is identifying those birds which can be often heard in the canopy of trees and or in thickets of dense foliage but cannot be seen. This workshop, as well as exploring the behaviour and purpose of this behaviour, will help participants to troubleshoot this issue by practicing the identification of common Irish birds by their song and call, which can be a very valuable survey skill. In the afternoon participants will be put to the test in the field, with a visit to Donadea Forest Park.

Health & Safety:
Please be mindful that this workshop includes an element of teaching outdoors. Warm waterproof clothing and good walking footwear are essential. As a rule of thumb, it is generally expected that any participants who sign up for a workshop that involves spending time in the outdoors will own and bring the appropriate outdoor clothing.
