Learning to recognize birds by sound can help you to experience nature in a whole new way. Use Merlin Bird ID in combination with other listening techniques to “tune in” to the soundscape around you. We’re excited to partner with the Cornell Lab’s Bird Academy to give you more 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 2022 will feature a different Bird Academy course offering—tune in at the start of May to see what’s on tap for next month.
