Eastern Wood Warblers return to breed in North America every spring, much to the delight of birders! This identification workshop with Kevin Karlson is drawn from his classes offered at festivals through North America each year, including the Biggest Week in American Birding.

However, due to the flexibility of this webinar, and since you can go back and review some of the more difficult ID tips afterwards on the recording, Kevin will offer a more comprehensive workshop with additional ID tips on separating similar warbler species, and what to concentrate on for other difficult to ID warblers.

Each species is shown in digital photo arrays that have most of the plumage possibilities in one view—breeding male/female, non-breeding, and immature. This comparison allows you to see the differences in each species in one view, which helps with your retention of important ID points.

Similar species are also shown together in digital arrays to allow for direct comparison of differences, with Kevin providing the guidance for the most important ID tips on screen. Most photos are from Kevin’s popular “Warblers of North America” laminated foldout guide (Quick Reference Publishing, 2015).

Quiz photos at the end of the program will test and reinforce your power of retention, and you will have about ten seconds or more to fashion your guess before learning the correct ID. Come and witness the challenges of warbler ID, and see the power of comparative viewing to separate similar species.
