Estimating numbers of birds in flocks is a skill that we use a lot while birding, but something we rarely get to practice. And – it turns out – something we are really not very good at!

I’ve put together a course that explains some of the science behind the challenge, offers lots of quizzes to test your skills, and offers a few suggestions for how we can improve. It’s still a work in progress, to be updated with more info and quizzes in the future.

You will need to register for an account (it’s free and your information will never be shared), and that will allow your progress and quiz results to be saved.
