Bird Language is the art and science of interpreting the language of nature. This 2 disk DVD set teaches you all you need to know to begin learning bird language on your own and setup a bird language group in your community. 

We've been working on this project for a couple of years and we're nearing completion. In these final stages we need to hire an animator, composer, graphic designer, and pay for closed captioning and the first printing of the DVD. All this costs quite a bit more than we're asking for but with negotiating deferred payments, going into personal debt and a minimum of $6,000 we will finish this DVD by the end of November. 

Once it’s finished it will retail for $40 and you’ll have to pay for shipping, so get it now for $30 with no shipping cost and help us out. Please post this on your google+ or facebook if you’re still using that...

Thanks!

    Personal Mentoring for Bird Language - Personalized audio CD

    Understanding and interpreting Bird Language is a skill that can only be learned with time and experience. Having a mentor to help guide you with good questions can help speed your learning journey drastically. This special offering recognizes both of these elements of experience and mentoring, and combines them into a process that will jump-start your bird language learning or help it to grow to the next level. Here’s how it works:

    You will be guided through completing nine bird sits in total. These each can be 30 minutes to an hour long. You will complete a cycle of 3 bird sits, then journal your experience and send your story via email to Josh. We will send you a process with helpful questions and things to consider when journaling bird language.

    Based on your journal, Josh will send you a personal response with detailed questions and feedback based on the 8 Shields of Bird Language to bring to your next cycle of 3 sits. This cycle will repeat for a total of three times all together. At the end of this cycle, Jon Young will create a special recording for you about Bird Language that is tailored to your sit spot experience.

    If we decide to make your recording a product we will give you credit.
