Distance Learning: Challenging Lookalikes – Waterfowl, Loons, Grebes, Hawks, & Flycatchers
Join Stefan Schlick for this intermediate-level class exploring how to tell difficult species apart. Common species in the Pacific Northwest often have an uncommon or rare look-alike. Sometimes there is more than one look-alike. There are also several cases of two relatively common species that are hard to separate. Stefan will present identification field marks for how to separate them in the field.
A few of the bewildering species we’ll cover in this class are:
Lesser vs Greater Scaup
Trumpeter vs Tundra Swan
Willow Flycatcher vs Western Wood-Pewee
Horned vs Eared Grebe (both breeding and non-breeding)
