Birdsongs of Riverlands

April 13, 2019 - West Alton, MO

John McGrath first learned the importance of identifying birds by their song in 1993 while conducting research on Neotropical migrants in the forests of the Ozark Plateau. The extensive canopy and understory foliage effectively concealed most birds and it was necessary to memorize species-specific songs for accurate census of the study areas. His quest to learn the many “tongues” of the avian world continues unabated to this day.

To learn more about avian communication please join John at the Audubon Center at Riverlands on Saturday, April 13th from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. for an introduction to the vocabulary of species nesting in the sanctuary. The first half of the program will introduce the songs/calls of our local resident birds and the second half will be spent outside practicing our new found skills.
