Distance Learning: Challenging Lookalikes – Shorebirds and all other Passerines with Stefan Schlick

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:

Hutton’s Vireo vs Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Western vs Least vs Semipalmated Sandpiper

Birds that make you go hmmm...

Learn the field marks for some of the most bewildering birds and learn how to tell the difference between a Hutton's Vireo and Ruby-crowned Kinglet!
