As we talk with many SIB members, birding by ear can be one of the most challenging and frustrating areas for new birders. Yet getting to know one bird’s call/song can be exciting to know the bird is nearby even if you can’t see it!
Sunday we will publish our weekly “Bird of the Week,” but we decided we wanted to give you a hint and possibly help you learn the call of one bird we all hear frequently around Seabrook Island. So, do you know what bird makes this sound??? Leave us a comment if you know or want to make a guess – and watch for the full article on Sunday morning!
In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy this article published by Cornell Lab of Ornithology to provide ideas on how to better learn bird songs by “Listening Deeply.”
