Learn how to make fast drawings of birds to help you observe and remember the details. You don’t need to be an artist to make effective field sketches. The process will help you develop a mental map of bird plumage, and develop fundamental birding skills. John Muir Laws will demonstrate techniques that anyone can use to improve their field notes. Bring a pencil and paper and be ready to draw – even if you tell yourself that you can’t draw. You can do this!
