    WEBINAR: A Brief Moment in Time: Documentation and Bird Photography

    May 20, 2021  4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
     

    THURSDAY, MAY 20, 4:00 - 5:00 PM est
    Join Michael Good for this webinar, part of the Wings, Waves, & Woods Festival.
    Photography has always played an essential role in science to visualize detail. For ornithology, record birds are verified based, in part, on an accurate description, photos, or sound recordings. Photos tell the truth and are used universally as fact. Because of the complexity of bird plumage, it is important to science that the colors or detail are accurate representations of what you claimed to have seen. We will talk about this in the webinar and then put what we learn to practice in the field during a walk for the Wings, Waves, Woods bird festival this year
