The similarities among shorebirds make it seemingly impossible to confidently assign IDs. Luckily, there are a number of techniques that make the process easier. We will learn how to recognize common species by their markings to serve as a base for comparison. Then we will focus on using overall patterns in a flock, and comparative size, shape, habitat, and behavior to narrow your choices for shorebird ID. Reccomended: Our Shorebirds and Swallows trip and/or our Plum Island Shorebirds trip. Stokes Beginner’s Guide to Shorebirds is also recommended.
Open to adults and youth age 15 or older with an adult.
