Learning about bird calls boosts enjoyment of the bush
Envirohub Bay of Plenty and the Te Puke branch of Forest and Bird are bringing their popular bird call identification training to Te Puke.
Have you been out walking in the bush and heard a bird song but had no idea which bird made it?
Did it ruffle your feathers even just a little, or spark an interest in knowing which bird it was?
The training session is run by knowledgeable bird expert Paul Cuming from Western Bay Wildlife Trust.
New Zealand birds are notoriously hard to see in the bush and even on open ground — so listening to birdsong is an important part of any bird study.
The session aims to cover the most commonly observed birds in the Bay of Plenty, but will also answer any tricky questions.
Book through Eventbrite. A koha is welcome to help continue to provide training opportunities in the future.
