Welcome to the Daily Podcast
28 Days Connection First Journey
Day 26, Bird Language
Some time ago I was out in the woods with my friend. Suddenly we heard loud nervous bird chirps from the bush next to us. We observed two very small birds (Zaunkönig) excitedly complaining. They flew in a circle, in a dome-like shape around something we couldn't see. We crept closer and could then see that the cat was hiding there. We retreated a bit and the cat went on and with it the birds followed yelling.
It was so sweet to see how the birds moved to the behavior of the cat and how the birds talked about the cat. This is called bird language. Jon has provided us with extra resources that we can use to learn bird language at home. These resources are very fun and free to use. They are on a bird conservation website from the U.S., the National Audubon Society’s California site. It’s very nice and there are many easy to use articles and videos to help you learn bird language. Check it out,
Birds talk to each other, we can understand it, and It’s FUN!!!
Some little things you can do to observe how the birds react to you:
Before you step out of the door try to listen ahead out of the door and how do the bird songs change when you go outside.
Approach a bird. Try it by going toward it sideways, give it enough space and watch its body language. Try again after you did a sense meditation.
Tune in to the bird songs, how do they make you feel?
Listen and watch how the birds communicate with other species.
Share and listen with your friends.
Did you get to know any birds on a more personal level in the last 28 Days?
Have you seen or heard any bird language moments that you could decipher?
What birds are around you the most in your area?
How did you name your neighboring bird that sings to you everyday?
In the Forum you can leave us a message:

Enjoying the bird life,
