Remove the confusion, from confusing fall warblers!
So you're feeling good that you got a handle on your warbler identification skills over the spring and summer. You can easily id Blackpolls, Black and White, Wilson's Magnolia etc. Unfortunately, come late summer and early fall the game changes.
Searching for warblers in fall is both one of the most enjoyable, but also can be one of the more frustrating experiences for beginner-intermediate birders. You have birds in immature plumages, females and fall plumage adults that often look nothing like they did just a month earlier.
In this workshop Birding Newfoundland will give you the tools you need to confidently identify those so called "confusing fall warblers". You often only get a glimpse of a warbler in fall, sometimes you don't even see the entire bird.I will teach you the key aspects to separate similar species and will teach you some of the tricks I've learned over the last 20 years that help me identify these birds quickly and with confidence.
Included in the workshop is the following:
4+ hours classroom instruction
full electronic copy of all lecture notes and photos
ongoing quiz bird series
