One of the great things about birding is you can do it anywhere, anytime. We want to share some great birding resources and opportunities to help you get more out of this fun activity this winter.
How would you like to be a better birder? There’s no better time than winter than to settle in and learn all about the habits, sounds and behaviors of your feathered friends. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology offers a full slate of engaging online courses covering various topics, from identifying bird sounds, to learning to photograph birds. Some classes come with a small cost, but Cornell is one of the most trusted bird resources out there.
