Birding with Your Phone Workshop, 2-26-2022
Ever go birding and see someone bent over their phone, doing something about birds but you can’t tell what it is? You’re not alone – many birders are using many apps to improve our skills and log our observations. This was the impetus for creating our Birding With Your Phone workshop, presented in February for our third year in a row, and the second time to be held virtually over Zoom. Ken Elkins of Audubon Connecticut once again expertly led our attendees through a variety of apps designed for smart phones. He showed screenshots and provided navigating advice for a number of apps including the Audubon Field Guide, Merlin, iNaturalist, BirdNet, and the Warbler Guide, among others. He ended the program by giving tips about using eBird. All in all, it was another helpful, informative workshop – thank you, Ken!
