Laura Whittemore has been watching and enjoying birds since sometime last century and loves to mentor newer birders as they improve their skills and encounter more birds. Through Portland Audubon she’s taught birding classes since 2000, helping launch the careers of hundreds of eager new birders. She’s especially keen on birding by ear and will help you tell the difference between a Black-capped and a Chestnut-backed Chickadee, for a start. Laura’s been lucky enough to bird in the Southern Hemisphere three times but has yet to experience a full-on North American spring warbler migration. In the meantime, she’ll keep birding locally in between house projects and dog walks.
