Birding 2.0 — Digital Tools for 21st Century Birding

November 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Read Time 1 Minutes


Registration link coming soon! Pre-registration is required for all classes as limited space is available.

Twenty-first century birding offers an amazing array of digital and technological aids to help birders improve their birding skills, while also contributing to bird conservation. Anne Miller provides an overview of some of the many digital aids, apps, learning resources, and conservation projects that are currently available to birders, both for the joy of birding, and for the urgent need to conserve North America’s birds.

Textbook: The National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America will serve as the text for this course; while we encourage students to bring their own, more than enough copies are available for use here in the office.

Where and when do we meet? The course meets on four consecutive Mondays (11/4, 11/11, 11/18, 11/25), 6–8 p.m., at the Alabama Audubon main office, located on the second floor of 3720 Fourth Avenue South. (Ample and well-lit parking is available in back, just behind Rodney Scott’s BBQ.)

  • Day 1: The birding year in Alabama, and how to use apps and online tools to find out where the birds are at any time of year.
  • Day 2: A lifetime of learning: local and internet resources for learning about birds.
  • Day 3: Observing birds in the field: using binoculars and spotting scopes, birding ethics, and using apps to help identify birds, plants, etc.
  • Day 4: Contributing to science through birding: locally, nationally, and globally.

Cost: Your one-time registration fee ($60/members; $85/non-members) covers all four meetings. (While you are not required to attend each class, do note that we cannot refund individuals for partial attendance.)

Registration: Class size is limited to fifteen, so don’t delay! To register, click on the button above. If you’re new to our online system and don’t yet have a username and password, simply click the “X” on the pop up and fill out the basic form.

Accessibility: Wheelchair access and limited parking is available in the front of the building on Fourth Avenue South. If parking in the back parking lot, there are stairs to get into the building.
