12 Steps for Bird Identification
(Our January General Meeting will again be a virtual meeting. You will need to register in advance here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.)
For many people, field guides are intimidating and difficult to use. How can you identify a bird when you don't know what you are looking at? Fortunately, there are several steps that can be used to help narrow the options until you are able to find the bird, at least in most cases. El Paso Audubon board member Kevin Floyd will introduce the 12 steps outlined in the Peterson Guide to Bird Identification -- in 12 Steps by Steve Howell and Brian Sullivan. This will be useful for beginning birders and might provide a new way of thinking about identification for more experienced birders. Bring your bird ID questions, and join us on Monday, January 18!
The January meeting will be part one of the "Be a Birder" talks. In February, we will focus on supplies and resources, like binoculars, field guides, phone apps, and the like. The February meeting will be Monday, February 15, and you can register for that meeting by clicking here.
The El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society. We have a large territory, all of Texas west of the Pecos River ("Trans-Pecos"). Our members are found throughout the Trans-Pecos, but most live in the region's largest city, El Paso. Birds, birding, wildlife, the environment, and our community are the concerns of the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society.
