Bird language is best observed and learned by simply sitting quietly in nature. The key is finding a place near your home where you can go and sit every day to observe the normal sights and sounds of birds. You’ll slowly begin to notice subtle changes in their sound and pitch with behaviors that could be linked to nearby predatory animals or a change in season.
At Weaving Earth, we offer bird language training in our WE Immersion program for adults, Wild Tenders Youth Program, and teen backpacking trips. We also offer weeklong sessions devoted to bird language. None are currently scheduled, but you can sign up for our newsletter below to find about course dates as soon as they are scheduled. The practice of bird language helps strengthen our listening and awareness skills, and supports our innate ability to listen and respond to our intuition. In an era marked by increasing disconnection from nature, studying bird language can give us the tools we need to be more successful in our relationships, careers, communities, and personal lives.
