Birding with Phone Apps – Rattlesnake Preserve
One event on May 14, 2022 at 7:30 am
Note that the dates/times for these events have changed as of May 6.
Come unscramble the multiple wonders of finding, reporting, and identifying birds using phone apps. What are the differences between BirdsEye, eBird, Merlin, iBirdPro, and Seek/iNaturalist? There are also many other apps useful for bird identification (e.g., Sibley, Peterson, Audubon, & NatGeo guides, Warbler Guide, Birds of the World, BirdSongID, Chirp!BirdSongs)? Which are most useful and under what circumstances? What other bird apps might be useful (e.g., BirdCodes). Naturalists Larry Master and Ella Clark will lead this walk and discussion on May 7 at 1 pm and May 14 at 7:30 am at Rattlesnake Preserve. Enter opposite 11 Rattlesnake Road. Be prepared for sun and ticks, and see the powerful advice here on our website about using permethrin spray to completely avoid ticks! No dogs, please.
We have added a second presentation early in the morning in order to see more and different kinds of birds. The afternoon will still have a few to see and the presentation of technology is the same but we recommend the earlier venue.
