HMBC Monday Zoom program - workshop on Flycatcher ID with Chris Benesh of Field Guides
This is a reminder that the HMBC March program will be held via a Zoom meeting on Monday March 1st at 6:30 PM. Use the meeting link below to join the meeting as a participant. All participants will enter the "waiting room" until the meeting host opens the meeting. Participants' audio lines will be muted on entry. We ask that participants keep their lines muted except when prompted for Q&A during the program.
NOTE: The first time you use Zoom on a device, you will be prompted to download the Zoom app when you click on the meeting link below. Follow the prompts to download the app and then launch the meeting using the meeting ID from the invite. (The app is recommended, but if you prefer, there is also an option when you open the link below to join the meeting via a web browser window, but with limited capabilities.) Audio connections can be through the app on your device or through a separate dial-in phone number given below.
Tonight’s talk looks at breaking down the mystique of flycatchers. Taken as a whole, this group can be a bit overwhelming, and all but the most experienced birders can struggle with them. In tonight’s talk, we will consider structure, behavior, along with vocal clues in sorting out differences between types of flycatchers likely to be encountered in the United States and Canada.
Chris Benesh is a lifelong birder living in Tucson, Arizona and has been studying flycatchers for many years. He works for Field Guides as a professional birding guide and produces educational videos for OutBirding.com.
