The guys learned how the osprey hunts, why does the woodpecker have a long tongue, how to distinguish the treecreeper from the nuthatch, and got acquainted with other features of the appearance and behavior of the birds. The Reserve's ornithologist, Oskar Sayfullin, spoke in more detail about Red Data Book birds, who need special protection: the Central Russian willow ptarmigan, the black-throated loon, the great curlew.

The lecture of the birds was accompanied by listening to their voices and watching videos. After the presentation, the guys took part in a quiz: they answered the questions about the birds and tried to identify them by voices.
