In this course, learn how to identify birds by sight and by sound. Courses take place in multiple locations. Please see the below schedule for details.


All volunteers must commit to one year of monitoring (4 field visits) at the Burnham Wildlife Corridor following the completion of their training. In addition, all volunteers must complete a Chicago Park District application on the first day of training, and must pass a background screening by the end of the training period. An interest in learning to identify birds and their songs is required. A basic familiarity with common birds is helpful but not necessary. The classroom sessions will teach the bird families and songs of the birds likely to be encountered. If cost is prohibitive or you do not meet age requirements but have a serious interest in volunteering, please contact kathleen.soler@chicagoparkdistrict.com.
