Bird ID course
Birdwatching is a hugely rewarding and enjoyable pastime, bringing a special enjoyment to a walk in the countryside. Being able to identify the birds that you see and hear greatly increases your connection with nature and enables you to contribute to conservation efforts by making a note of your sightings, including through citizen science.
If you want to learn more about birds, you enjoy spending time outdoors and are interested in volunteering as a bird surveyor, our Bird ID Course for beginners may be just for you.
The course is designed for people who have little or no knowledge about birds but who have the passion and commitment to learn about the abundant bird life in Cyprus and to progress on to playing an important part in nature conservation. The course has been designed to be fun and interactive, with the aim to teach and inspire, to enrich everyday life, help you identify birds and to allow you to pursue a new and exciting hobby. Participants who successfully complete the course may be able to get involved with citizen science and bird monitoring with BirdLife Cyprus, including the Common Breeding Bird Survey, migrating raptor and soaring bird surveys and monthly wetland bird counts and more, depending on ability and interest.
