  1. LA Birders Webinar: Warbler ID with Tom Stephenson, 9/21 LINK
    DATE: Sep 18, 2021 @ 12:12pm, 1 year(s) ago
    Hello birders, You are invited to join LA Birders for next weeks webinar and our other upcoming programs -- please feel free to share with any other folks or groups you think may be interested! And dont forget that nearly all of our past programs are recorded and easily viewable any time on YouTube ! Warbler ID Made Easy(er) with Tom Stephenson, Tuesday, Sep 21, 2021 7:00pm via YouTube North American warblers are some of the most beautiful birds in the world. But their beautiful colors often blind birders to many of their most important ID points. This problem is compounded by the often brief and obstructed views we have in the field. This talk discusses many of these very important but often overlooked ID points such as overall contrast, subtle facial features, color impressions, feather edging, rump contrast, and foraging style, location, and behavior. And fortunately, viewing a warbler from below can reveal some of the most important ID points for many species. Learn how many tail and undertail covert patterns are, in fact, diagnostic alone or when combined with one other ID point.Individual species, especially the most challenging to identify, will also be discussed with outlines of the important ID points, comparisons with similar species, and illustrations of how even partial views can be used to identify many of even the most challenging warbler species. Join us for an evening of warbler identification without getting warbler neck! This webinar will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel ; it will also be recorded and made available on YouTube for later - or repeat - viewing.
