  •  Spring is the time to get out and connect with nature! Learn how to identify birds by sight and sound at the “Bird Tune-Up,” a free indoor program for all ages and skill levels presented by the Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society at the Lackawanna College Environmental Education Center in Moscow on Sat., April 12 at 2 p.m.
    Spring is the best time of year to observe many birds and watch them singing because the foliage on the trees and shrubs has not reached full maturity.
    Once everything has leafed out, finding birds becomes much more difficult! It is at this point that knowing how to recognize birdsong becomes extremely helpful for finding and identifying birds.
    Not to mention how rewarding it feels to hike through the woods feeling fully ‘tuned in’ and connected to everything that’s going on around you. It’s sublime, definitely one of life’s joys,” says Chris Fischer, an enthusiastic and experienced birder currently serving as Audubon’s President.
    The “Bird Tune-Up” program focuses on birds that can be found locally, using slides and sounds to illustrate the various forms of birdsong. It will also cover topics like how birds form their songs and calls and the use of mobile birdsong “apps” in the field.
    Bird Tune-Up” will be presented by Barb Leo and Kathy Dodge, both veteran birders who have contributed many hours and sightings to the recently published Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania.
