Pretty easy, overall.
Took this course because I needed credits so I could maintain financial aid and it was the best course I took at UMaine. It's a fascinating course whether you are into birds or not. We spent a lot of time traveling around on mini field trips searching for birds. The course isn't difficult but we did have to complete a project and the lab is early in the morning. Brian is smart and witty and absolutely entertaining. If Brian is still teaching this course then don't hesitate....take it!
The highlight of this course was a day trip up the coast. We saw so many cool birds on the trip and had a wonderful time.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to study bird songs. I recommend Larkwire (an app for your phone). It quizzes you on bird songs and is really helpful. Don't bother buying the textbook. You don't need it.
