TESTIMONIAL - Birding by Ear Workshops
Both my mom and I really enjoyed the workshop series. It’s the first time either of us has felt like we could fit birds and their songs into a framework to remember rather than placing it in a jumbled, confusing heap of facts that slip away almost immediately. You made it very accessible! (E.M. Saskatoon May 2021)
