What's Included

What is that bird teaching you? This outdoor, experiential workshop offers an opportunity to observe and learn bird language first hand in the field. The workshop will include: Observation and identification of local birds The “5 Voices” of bird language and their meanings Shapes of alarm and bird language “signatures” Skills of stealth and invisibility, with the birds as our teachers Steps and tools for further learning! The bulk of our course will take place at William’s Lake in Rosendale from 6am to 12pm. It is important that folks show up at 6 am sharp so that we can begin our bird sit for the dawn chorus. Please allow yourself extra time in the morning if needed. What you will need: You will need to bring a notebook and pens for recording data. You should dress in layers and bring waterproof gear, April mornings can often be cold and wet. You will be sitting in a field for about an hour, we highly recommend bringing a pad or blanket to sit on. Also bring a water bottle and snack for the morning.
