Want to work on your bird identification skills? After you’ve mastered size and shape in the first Be a Better Birder course, color and pattern are the next best clues. We’re excited to partner with the Cornell Lab’s Bird Academy to offer a suite of educational resources in thanks for your eBirding: in September, every eligible checklist that you submit gives you a chance to win free access to the online self-paced course Be a Better Birder: Color and Pattern.
Ten lucky eBirders will get this course for free for their September eBirding! If you like taking part in the eBirder of the Month Challenges, here are even more opportunities to motivate yourself to get out birding. Each month of 2017 will feature a different Bird Academy course offering—tune in at the start of October to see what’s on tap for next month.
