Identifying Warblers with The Warbler Guide

He will also present the guide's revolutionary system for studying and memorizing vocalizations that can give the warbler enthusiast a whole new set of tools for identification by ear. He will show that once birders have a trained eye and ear, even partial views of the bird can be valuable and diagnostic-and that with the right information, every look at a bird can be a good look!
