Bird Identification Facebook Style, and an Appeal for our Appeal

As many readers know, the ABA has a robust Facebook presences that includes several groups. One of those groups, What’s This Bird, has been a wonderful way for people of all skill levels and backgrounds to post photos of birds and to get those birds identified.

Greg Neise and I are among the small group of dedicated administrators of that site and we hosted a live bird identification workshop in the group in which people could shoot us questions about Bird ID. For those who missed it or perhaps aren’t on Facebook, we’ll share it here.

This workshop was taken on as part of our 2018 Year-End Appeal. As 2018 draws to a close, we are especially grateful to you for the support you have given the American Birding Association over the years and the great things your support has made possible like What’s This Bird and our many other free resources we provide the birding community. We hope as you think about our birding past and future, you’ll be inspired to make a year-end gift to help the ABA continue and expand its work as we move into our 50th year. You can do so here.

Thanks for your support and come join us for another live ID workshop in the not too distant future!
