Led by Randy Little, Associate Naturalist This workshop series will begin Wednesday March 25 and will meet every Wednesday evening until April 29. Workshop participants may join Randy on Saturday, May 2 from 8:00 to 9:30-ish am for a free, outdoor, “practical hands-on” Learning the Birds by Song walk at the Sanctuary. For beginners and those with some experience, this birding-by-ear workshop series will improve your bird identification skills. More often than not, birds are heard before they are seen (if seen at all!) Learning their songs will add another dimension to your birdwatching. March 25 and April 1 will cover the winter resident birds, April 8 and 15 will cover the early migrant birds, and April 22 and April 29 will cover the summer resident birds. Randy Little is a former NJA board member and long-time NJA volunteer. Randy learned birding as a youngster under the wings of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology’s founders, and is a master at recording bird songs for the Cornell Lab. Cost: $10 members, $15 nonmembers. To register please call 908-396-6386.
