Spend time learning how to understand bird sounds both in the field and in the lab with great online techniques like Audio Spectrograms. Be prepared to engage your mind on a whole new level to learn and retain bird sounds like you've never done before.

Recommended reading is The Warbler Guide by Stephenson and Whittle.*

Expect to do some supplementary homework to get the most out of the class.
