Bird Language

The communication network of birds is a vast, complex, and
delicate instrument. Pressure to survive, evade predators,
and find food has shaped our winged companions’ perceptive
and communicative capacities. The calls, postures, and other
behaviors of birds convey much information to those who
understand their patterns. The attentive, trained observer can
deduce through bird language the location of predators and
other actions on the landscape.

This program will teach students the 5 common calls of birds and how they can help people read what is happening on the landscape.
