“Birds talk to one another, we can understand it, and it is fun!”

Bird language is the communication network of the forest, long practiced by trackers and scouts around the world.

Explore the concepts of “alarm vs. baseline”, “shapes of alarm”, and “disturbance patterns” created as animals move across the landscape. The Language of the Birds offers a unique window into ecology, animal behavior, and the relationship between people and nature.
