(AT) Friends of Hagerman 2nd Saturday Nature Programs
March 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
TO ALL BPTMN Members:
Here is great online AT opportunity courtesy of Friends of Hagerman Virtual Second Saturday program on the topic of Birding by Ear.
Program: Birding by Ear–Non-passerine Version
Speaker: Wayne Meyer, Associate Professor of Biology at Austin College
Description: Birds can be hard to find, especially when the trees start leafing out in the spring. However, the birds become very vocal during the breeding season, so if you can recognize the sounds you hear, it will give you a hint where to look for that singing bird. This month’s program will teach ways to learn bird songs emphasizing common local birds so you can get a head start on finding those pesky lurkers. This time around, we will work on the non-passerines, the so called non-song birds.
Wayne Meyer is Associate Professor of Biology at Austin College, where he has been teaching for 27 years. He started birding at 13 in Connecticut. In 1993 he finally achieved his life’s dream of being paid to look at birds when he joined the faculty of Austin College. He has birded both coasts of the U.S. extensively and has spent a quarter century birding in Texas and Oklahoma. The proximity of Austin College to Hagerman NWR has made research on prairie birds easy and convenient and he has been studying song learning and singing in Painted Buntings for over a decade. Meyer is also a sought-after speaker for Master Naturalist groups and a frequent speaker at the Friends of Hagerman NWR Second Saturday programs.
