Music Appreciation for the Outdoors Person: Bird Song Workshop with Mark Faherty

March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Music Appreciation for the Outdoors Person: Bird Song Workshop with Mark Faherty

Birds are nature’s musicians. This lecture will teach the nature lover to appreciate the music of the great outdoors. Science Coordinator Mark Faherty will teach you how to listen to birds: how to categorize the different sounds, how to describe the calls and songs, and how to identify some common bird sounds here on Cape Cod. Recognizing birds by their sounds opens a whole new awareness—the more you learn, the more you will realize what you’ve been missing.

 Mark Faherty: Mark has been the Science Coordinator at Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary since August 2007 and has led birding trips for Mass Audubon since 2002. While his projects involve everything from horseshoe crabs to bats, he has studied primarily bird ecology for the last 20+ years, working on research projects in Kenya, Florida, Texas, California, Arizona, Mexico, and the Pacific Northwest. He’s also led birding eco-tours to Tanzania, Belize, Panama, and Peru. Mark’s Weekly Bird Report airs each Wednesday on WCAI, the Cape and Islands NPR station. He also co-hosts Bird News, a monthly call-in show all about birds, on WCAI’s The Point with Mindy Todd.
