About the event
Birds are talking about us. Come learn how to understand what they’re saying. Until relatively recently, humans were very in tune with the language of birds. Somewhere along the way, most modern humans stopped paying attention to the birds and lost this connection. Come spend the morning exploring the Eastern Promenade of Portland, Maine with bird-whisperer Dan Gardoqui. This walk will value quality interactions with birds over quantity (e.g. collecting a big list of species). You’ll learn about the 5 voices of birds as well as practices that will help you better connect with birds.
Dan Gardoqui is a bird-curious mammal with over 30 years of sharing the more-than-human-world with others. A Certified Wildlife Tracker and Registered Maine Guide, Dan was also science editor for the bird language book What the Robin Knows and is well-known for his uncanny bird mimicry skills and his Learn a Bird series on YouTube. He currently runs Lead with Nature, where he offers nature-based consulting services and educational adventures.
