Bird Speak: An introduction to Bird Language

October 21, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Bird Speak

$35 General Admission ( Through Wild Intelligence)

We all know birds sing and we know they chirp. But what do those sounds mean?

Just like we talk to one another the birds communicate through their voices – each has its own song or sound.  By learning how to pay closer attention to the birds melodic communication and their behaviors their simple lives easily open themselves up to us.


The birds communicate when there is a hawk or owl around very specifically and their body language and sounds can reveal rabbits, coyotes, deer, and many other things that are going on in world of the great outdoors.  All we have to do is listen.  In this short course, Sarah Hubbard will share with you everything BIRD as well as skills you can use to develop your own Bird Speak.  Come spend a Saturday in an intimate class setting while soaking in beautiful woods, watching the birds, and sharing in ways to connect to the natural world around you.


In this class we will explore:

  • Bird Language
  • Bird Behaviors
  • Who our most common local birds are (Master Lists)
  • How to attract them to your yard
