The skill of identifying birds by their vocalizations adds a wonderful new level of enjoyment to any outdoor outing. Join us for a morning of listening to and learning some audio clues for identifying bird songs and calls in the field. Some listening and recording equipment used in Greg Weddig's Soundscapes workshop will be along on this trip. Participants may wish to take the Soundscapes of California workshop on Saturday at 9am at the Chico Masonic Family Center that compliments this field trip.
