Has this happened to you? You step outside and hear a song or call you can’t identify. “What bird is that?” you wonder. We’re excited to partner with the Cornell Lab’s Bird Academy to help you gain confidence in birding by ear. In April, every eligible checklist that you submit gives you a chance to win free access to Bird Academy’s Be a Better Birder: How to Identify Bird Songs course.
Ten lucky eBirders will get this course for free from their April eBirding. If you like taking part in the eBirder of the Month Challenges, here are even more excuses to motivate yourself to get out birding. Each month of 2021 will feature a different Bird Academy course offering—tune in at the start of May to see what’s on tap for next month.
