Description:  Hosted by Anna Matthews of the Oaks and Prairies Joint Venture through the American Bird Conservancy, this webinar will provide you a wonderful opportunity to learn about grassland birds, including advanced song identification tips and visual clues to identification.

If you like grasslands and if you like birds, then this is the webinar for you! We’ll be discussing identification tips for priority grassland birds in the Oaks and Prairies Joint Venture region (click link for area covered), including advanced song identification tips originally designed for training point count survey technicians.
