Event Details

There is a constant conversation going on in the wilds of Point Reyes. Those who have the skills and understanding to join the conversation can interpret the behavior and natural language of birds. Come learn about this lost art, and expand your knowledge of what’s happening in the natural world. The class will explore the basic core routines of bird language, the “shapes of alarm”, the sound & motion-based alarm signature that each animal generates as it moves across the landscape. Come walk the trails with esteemed naturalist Peter Bergen, and learn how to diminish your ring of disturbance and expand your ring of awareness while in the field, so you will be able to see more wildlife on your own journeys. We will also touch on ‘backyard bird’ language practices and routines so you can join in on the conversation at home. Also open to youth (age 15-17) with attending adult.
