The skill of identifying birds by their vocalizations adds a wonderful new level of enjoyment to any outdoor outing. Many experienced birders find most of their birds by sound alone! Join us for a morning of listening to and learning some audio clues for identifying bird songs and calls in the field at the Pine Creek Unit of the Sacramento River Refuge Complex. Asher takes delight in helping people add this rewarding skill to their birding tool-kit!

Asher Perla

Asher Perla is a 14 year old high school student and birder from Yuba county. He started birding in early 2019, after discovering eBird on a Snow Goose Festival field trip. In 2020, he completed a birding bird year in Yuba County, observing 242 species in one calendar year. Asher goes birding every day, and loves to discover and observe new behaviours in common birds as well as find rare and unusual species. In 2021, he began a study of nesting habits of a Purple Martin colony in Oregon House which he plans to continue in 2022.
