Birds are talking about us. Want to learn what they’re saying?

Until quite recently, most humans were in tune with the language of birds. Somewhere along the way, most modern humans stopped paying attention to the birds and lost this vital connection to the more-than-human world.

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.

(NOTE: If you’re purchasing for more than one person, please list the names of the other(s) in the “note” section at checkout)
