Stephane Perreault will present ”Birding by Ear on Long Island: Spring Warbler Songs.”
This program is for birders who would like to learn or review warbler songs as we enter the core of spring migration. The songs of 30 locally common and uncommon warblers will be presented in practical learning groups. Traditional tools such as digital recordings, sonograms, and catchy phrases will be used to get a handle on the identification of our warblers by ear.
Stephane Perreault is a graduate of McGill University, where he conducted research on the American Redstart. Since moving to Long Island in the mid 90’s he has pursued a diversified career in laboratory biology and has remained an avid birder. He is currently a staff ornithologist at the Seatuck Environmental Association and leads the organization’s bird surveys at Greentree and other locations.
