From a Cornell Lab’s email:

“Each spring for 40 years, bird enthusiasts have gathered at the Cornell Lab for Spring Field Ornithology to learn from world-renowned ornithologists. This year, for the first time, anyone, anywhere can take the course online. 

Focused on species native to the Northeastern U.S., course lectures are packed with bird identification tips designed to expand your birding skills. They also highlight key behaviors including migration, nesting, and song to make your birdwatching more rewarding.

The eight-week online course runs March 24 – May 16 with new lectures posted each Thursday. The course also includes special access to new online ID quizzes to help you practice.”
