We will demystify the language and behavior of the birds, understand how birds can extend your awareness and deepen your connection with nature. We’ll learn the 5 voices of the birds, the shapes of alarm and what they tell you, and which birds to focus on learning first. We’ll also dig into the nuances of birding by ear, by learning bird groups, where to find common birds, mnemonics, and how to start identifying birds by their song.


“If we learn to read the birds-and their behaviors and vocalizations-through them, we can read the world at large... if we replace collision with connection, learn to read these details, feel at home, relax, and are respectful-ultimately the birds will yield to us the first rite of passage: a close encounter with an animal otherwise wary of our presence.”
― Jon Young
