At the end of December, I taught a workshop about how to find your own “Bird of the Year” for 2022. Now that we’re halfway through the year, let’s check in!
In this free workshop, we explored:
If you don’t have a bird of the year yet, is it too late to get one?
What have you learned about your bird so far? What stories have you observed?
What questions do you still want to investigate during the remainder of the year?
How has your connection to this bird changed by thinking of it as your “bird of the year”? Does it feel different from the approach of trying to see as many species as possible?
The class lasted about an hour, and then we had time for discussion. If you watch the recording, you can hear us talk about interesting topics such as:
The challenges of interpreting animal behavior
Why different countries chose their National Bird
Butterfly aggression??? 🤯
