Tune In! Just as it sounds…pun intended. Join DNR wildlife educator Liz Herzmann to practice identifying birds by their song. We all know birds can be beautiful by sight, but have you taken the time to learn their songs and calls? Whose call sounds like “cheeseburger” or “drink your tea?” Each species has unique sounds that make identifying birds by ear a unique and challenging way to birdwatch. Learn about the difference between songs and calls, what to listen for and test your own skills. Part of the program will involve an interactive game where you will compete with fellow bird enthusiasts and test your bird sound knowledge. This program is great for all skill levels and will be a perfect way to prepare for the upcoming spring season as the birds begin calling! Many expert birders do not even need binoculars as they can identify nearly all bird species by ear. Liz is the wildlife educator for the Wisconsin DNR at Horicon Marsh, where she has worked for 9 years. Liz and husband Matt are also the Dodge County coordinators for the Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II.
