Nothing is more fascinating in the avian world than migratory movements of birds. From 20,000-mile annual journeys of Arctic Terns to 1,200-mile non-stop flights of Blackpoll Warblers, there are still many unanswered questions concerning the “how, why, where and when” of bird migration. Join Kevin as he shares a pictorial exploration of the "magic of migration".

Birding by Impression

Birding by Impression

This interactive program shares a new approach to field ID that encourages birders to assess the physical features and behavior of birds before adding plumage details and feather patterns to reach a more holistic ID picture. After reviewing the principles of Birding by Impression, the audience will try to spot differences between similar species and reach an ID conclusion using comparative photos and ID tips from the book. The beauty and effectiveness of this approach lies in its simplicity.
