A short theoretical session on field records for bird watching (15-30min), followed by a practical session (45-60min) to put the concepts presented into practice. Keeping a field notebook with a record of observations can help birdwatchers evolve in this practice more quickly, making their observations more valuable to themselves and to science, and can serve as a journal for later recall. In this activity, we will highlight what data should be recorded and we will also introduce a new tool that helps in this task.
For this activity, you will not need any equipment. The use of binoculars is recommended but optional. It doesn't matter what level of experience you have in birding and identifying birds.
We appreciate that participants arrive at the location of the activity 5 to 10 minutes before.
