Primitive Skills | Intro to Bird Language

Bird language is an ancient skill that people have used to help them survive for thousands of years. Whether you have been a birder for life, or don’t know an eagle from a sparrow, this class will teach you how to understand what birds are saying and how they are saying it. You will learn how birds are the news media of the ecosystem, describing what is going on all around you and how to distinguish between baseline and alarm behaviors and where danger is located. After taking this class, your experiences in nature will be altered forever because you will have the knowledge to see, hear, and understand the location of other animals, their movements, and what they true intentions are!
