Environmental Studies Institute: Bird Language Study Group

Harris Center for Conservation Education 83 Kings Hwy, Hancock, NH

Birds are the messengers of the forest. In this four-week course, you’ll learn how to listen deeply, how to tell what different bird calls mean, and how practicing bird language can give us a deeper understanding of the world around us.
