Webinar: Merlin Bird ID Trivia with Birds Canada

  • This event has passed.

February 15 at 8:00 pm 9:00 pm

The Great Backyard Bird Count is just around the corner! What better way to brush up on North American bird identification than with a fun-filled trivia game? The Merlin Bird ID app, developed by the Cornell Lab and powered by machine learning, will be put to the test. Can the app outperform an experienced birder and you, our live audience? We’ll use photos and sounds to determine who can accurately identify the most North American bird species.

This is an interactive game, so come ready to play! Throughout the game, we’ll explore how Merlin “decides” on an ID. Our panelist, Yousif Attia of Birds Canada, will share advice on how to identify tricky birds—plus, he’ll provide insights into birding during the Great Backyard Bird Count.
