Your Ears are a Great Tool for Local Birding

  Go ahead, use your ears to identify the birds in your backyard.  On the Weekly Bird Report, Vern Laux says learning the calls of a few singing birds in our area is not hard, and he walks us through some common birdsong heard at this time of year, including the Song Sparrow, White-throated Sparrow, Black-capped Chickadee, the Northern Flicker, and the American Robin. Should you take an interest, says Vern, you could learn the songs of all the nesting species in your neighborhood, or even on the Cape and Islands, in one summer season!
