Identifying Spring Warblers & Vireos – with Josh Haas
This is a hybrid in-person and Zoom event.
Most southern Michigan birders would agree Warblers and Vireos are just plain tough; in part due to limited time with these colorful neotropical migrants each migration season. Many northern breeding birds spend as little as a couple weeks in our region. Join us as we welcome Josh Haas who will feature many of the Warblers and Vireos we see from late April into May with a focus on differentiating families & species by field mark, habitat, song and most importantly; behavior. Josh will walk through first narrowing things down by family and how to pull out enough pieces of the puzzle for positive ID. In addition, he will feature species songs as well as tips on learning bird songs and how to hone in on individuals amongst the chorus. Not only will we get to see some of Josh’s finest warbler and vireo images, he will also feature videos of some of these birds hunting and singing.
Our program will be held in person at Matthaei Botanical Gardens, and online via Zoom for those who wish to attend remotely.
