Be a better birder

This Worm-eating Warbler was photographed last fall in the Grand Valley by photographer Jackson Trappett. Such visual confirmation is key in identifying a rare or migrant species.



The secret to being a great birder is being able to see the birds.

Not just spotting a puff of feathers or some “birdy” looking object sitting atop a tree, but really seeing a bird.

Noticing eye-rings, leg color, or shape of tail and any key markings, is easier when the bird holds still.

See how bird photographer Jackson Trappett captures a bird’s essence during his presentation Feb. 16 for the Grand Valley Audubon Society’s annual membership meeting.
