Workshop 1: Bird Language and Human Language (registration required)

Songbirds are the inter-connected eyes and ears of our ecosystems. But can we learn what they are saying? This first session explores the connections between bird language and human language. You’ll learn the five most common forms of bird languages and methods to help you understand what the birds are saying – you’ll even use emojis to help you remember! All registrants will receive a downloadable Bird Language mini-journal for the bird conversation homework before Workshop 2.

Jeff Caplan has has more than 30 years experience as a naturalist and a teacher of communication skills. He has lead workshops in Yosemite through the University of California as well as internationally in Malaysia, the Galapagos and in the Amazon jungles of Ecuador. His Bird Language Workshops help participants cultivate a common language for connecting more deeply with nature and birds. ​For more info on Jeff’s future workshops please go to
