“Kristi Dranginis is the best bird coach ever.” ~ Deborah D., Small Business Owner
"I loved your course. I have been birding for 20 years and wish I'd had this approach from the get go! Thanks." ~ Carolyn M.
Kristi, you taught me how to learn about birds, not just bird facts." ~ Elyse K., Dentist
"Thank you so much for this course. Your lessons are fabulous. I'm actually a professional (but very visual!) ornithologist, who also has no musical roots and struggles to ID calls and songs, even for birds that I observe regularly! I think, however, that your tricks will come in very handy, and I plan to work them into my birding routine. Love your teaching style. Thanks for making bird education fun! Keep up the great work."~Jessica S., Ornithologist
"Kristi brings a meticulous system of observation to the art of birding that I haven’t seen with other expert birders."~ Dwight F., Accountant
"Thank you very much for your mentorship. It was wonderful to spend time watching your videos. You have provided me with tools and confidence to continue on my own for a while. I am truly grateful." ~ Stephanie B.
"I've got a "testimonial" that goes all the way back to the bird song class from almost a year ago. I think the class has just started-and we were encouraged to come up with our own ways to transcribe Birdsong into something we would remember. I went to the Bosche Del Apache with Brant. Raymond VanBuskirk pointed out the flight call we were hearing as a greater yellowlegs. I thought it sounded like "trick or treat." So today at bitter Lake Wildlife refuge, I was watching some shore birds flying and making a loud call. I thought, that sounds like trick-or-treat again – which helped me hone in quickly on the ID. I kept hearing lots of yellowleg trick-or-treaters as I went through the refuge! I would never have remembered that call and whose it was if I hadn't followed Kristi's advice and come up with my own words for the call." ~ Deanna N., Public School Employee
