How do birds communicate and what are they doing? What can we learn from this? 

Our ancestors had an innate knowledge of what was going on around them – understanding the voices and body language of birds gives us clues to the concentric rings, the ripples of communication going on in the animal world. You can also tell things like which direction the wind is coming from and whether it will rain or not from watching the birds.

Participants will:

  • hear some inspirational stories,
  • try new bird language teaching games to play with children and adults,
  • have a go at mapping and gleaning techniques,
  • see how the activities link to learning in schools
  • learn about the 5 voices of the birds
  • spend time alone, in stillness, observing nature
  • deepen your connections to place and people.

This course is invaluable for anyone working in the outdoors with children or adults, who enjoys sharing the wonders of nature with others because it will give you an advantage and help you understand what the birds are telling you.

“A little bird told me.” Many of us know the meaning of the phrase. You will come to know how the phrase came to be!
