Description: UK celebrity birder David Lindo, aka 'The Urban Birder', shares the magic and thrills of urban birding and tips for birding during global pandemics. The Basics of Urban Birding session is for beginners and people who are curious about the birds they see around them but can’t recognize. Our conversation will be non-technical and relevant to everyone in COVID-19 lockdown. David will talk about the concept of looking for birds in an urban environment and how we can train ourselves to hear birds over the sound of city life. He talks about how to recognize birds you begin to notice and come to expect in urban Ohio. We’ll also talk about what binoculars to get and how to use them and how to use field guides. David helps us to understand more deeply the emotional and mental benefits of watching urban birds.
