Backyard Birding by Ear

This sounds like such a great event! I'm totally tone deaf so would likely not be able to pick a warbler from a wren as far as their calls, but what a lovely day it would be to spend in the very lovely Sharon.

Audubon Sharon will present "Backyard Birding by Ear" at 8 a.m. June 4 at the Miles Wildlife Sanctuary in Sharon, Conn. 
"Northwest Connecticut has the highest diversity of breeding birds in the country and they rely on our forests and backyards to raise their young," the agency said in a statement.
"One of the best ways to know the birds in your backyard is to learn their songs. There is nothing more satisfying than associating a familiar song with a particular bird as you sit on your deck or work in the garden." 
After participating in the program, participants will be able to identify the "Top 20" backyard birds with their ears just by tuning into their songs, the statement said.

The program will be led by Scott Heth and Laurie Fortin and held at the beautiful Miles Wildlife Sanctuary, 99 West Cornwall Road, Sharon.
Cost is $10 per person.  Refreshments will be served and reservations are required as seating is limited.  To reserve a spot, contact the Center at (860) 364-0520.
