Bird Language Courses

Bird Sounds Interpretation Courses - Photo by Filip TkaczykI came to this course for stretching my consciousness and awareness and got that and so much more…Alexia is so skilled and knowledgeable an instructor in Bird Sounds Interpretation (Bird Language). Her love for the work created such excitement and curiosity for the group!
-Dale Rhodes

Practice activities that build greater sensory acuity, train the body to move gracefully and silently in the forest, and cultivate the ability to interpret predator disturbance patterns displayed in bird sounds and behaviors (bird language).

As the master tracker Olaus Murie wrote “One should always listen to the warnings of the birds.” Learn to recognize the differences between bird sounds, such as calls and alarms, and a whole new world of awareness opens up to you.
