Birds are vocal creatures. Many bird species communicate with a variety of sounds: songs, companion calls, begging, and alarms. These vocalizations can reveal to us a great deal of information about who is lurking around on the landscape: hawks, owls, housecats, weasels, and many other predators.
Bird Language gives us insight into the subtle goings-on in nature—including right in our backyards. It also reveals the impact our presence as modern humans has in a natural landscape, and teaches us how to walk with “softer feet.”
This workshop presents simple-to-learn techniques on identifying the states of Baseline vs. Alarm in the landscape, the 5 Voices of the Birds, and common Shapes of Alarm.
