FIELDCRAFT FOR BIRDERS
One of the most satisfying aspects of bird watching is getting a good
close view of a wild bird, one that allows you to study plumage
features, observe behavior or simply enjoy the aesthetic experience.
Try as we may, getting close to birds is not so easy. Binoculars and
spotting scopes help and most birders know not to wear white in the
field but what are some other ways to improve your chances of getting a
prolonged, satisfying view of a bird? This program will focus on
"Fieldcraft", the field practices and specialist skills for observing
birds at close range. Techniques intended to advance birding
proficiency and get those killer views will be revealed with the goal
of raising gratification and lowering frustration that can accompany
our favorite pursuit.
