We are thrilled to announce a BIRD SOUND RECORDING WORKSHOP with renowned expert, Greg Budney. Learn essential skills to record bird songs and calls from renowned expert, Greg Budney, retired digital collections curator of Cornell’s Macaulay Library. An engaging and enthusiastic instructor, Greg has taught over 40 natural sound recording workshops to birders, naturalists, and researchers. He offers instruction and encouragement whether you are a beginner or advanced level recordist.

This 4-day intensive workshop will use a blend of virtual instruction, field recording practice at a location of your choosing, and critical listening sessions. Your mornings will be spent in the field recording bird sounds at a place of your choosing. Late mornings and early afternoons, you perform basic edits to your sound file(s) and upload them to share. Afternoons and evenings will include virtual instruction and critical listening sessions in which you share a recording for feedback.

The workshop cost is $150. Note: there are limited partial scholarships available for Maine residents with financial need.

For interested participants who complete the workshop, there will be a loaner set of professional field recording equipment available for use at Acadia National Park throughout the year. The equipment loan is made possible by Schoodic Notes: Bird Sounds of Acadia through the Bird Ecology Program of Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park to encourage more bird sound recordings in the park.
