In this 45-minute long, online workshop, raptor biologists Jennifer and Tom Coulson will talk about their basic approach to raptor identification, a strategy which differs from that of most field guides.

Jennifer will also show participants how to use free, online resources to sharpen raptor and bird identification skills.
