About this event
Birds and What They Can Tell UsThe birds are the messengers of the forest, and learning to understand their vocalizations and body language is a great way to immerse yourself in nature and experience the relationships and interconnections within the landscape. Although bird language goes on year round here in New England, the birds are at their most active in spring and summer. As migrating species return, and the winter flocks break up to begin the nesting season, there is much for the birds to talk and strut about! Naturalist and teacher, Kevin Bose, will lead this unique 'Bird Language' workshop. Kevin will help you tune your awareness to the vocalizations and movements of our avian friends by sharing some related stories, followed by an explanation of the five main voices of the birds. Then we’ll put this information into practice by spreading out on the landscape of Distant Hill for a observational “bird-sit”. Afterwards we’ll regroup to share what we each heard and saw, and create a sound map of what was observed.
Registration Required - 15 Person LimitNote: This workshop is for new birders and expert alike! The ability to identify the birds you see and hear is not necessary. Participants are welcome to bring their binoculars; however, no birding equipment is required . For questions about the workshop, please contact KEVIN at email@example.com
