New England Bird Language Intensive - White Pines Programs


  • Barbara C. Harris Center 400 Sawmill Rd Greenfield, NH 03047 (map)

I was first introduced to Bird Language many years ago listening to tracker & naturalist Jon Young's teachings on cd.  Then in 2007, I attended a workshop in Plainfield VT with Dan Gardoqui (co-founder of the White Pines Program) and was intrigued by the collective approach to watching birds & bird behavior. Many years later, Jon & Dan published, What the Robin Knows that pulled it all together in a wonderfully comprehensive book. In 2017, I finally had the opportunity to take the New England Bird Language Intensive which offers a deep dive into Bird Language, and it moved me not only as a birder but as a person. 

For the second year, I’ll be part of the team of mentors leading the New England Bird Language Intensive offered by the White Pines Programs southern New Hampshire. Cost for the weekend is $493 which includes meals, lodging & instruction. I do hope you'll join me!

What is the New England Bird Language Intensive (NEBLI)?

  • This intensive is a course designed to teach you how to identify, interpret and appreciate the wonderful world of birds.

  • Spend a long weekend studying the birds within the context of a naturalist community. Beginners and experts alike come together to observe and share their knowledge and love for the birds.

Who is the New England Bird Language Intensive for?

  • Anyone curious to discover more about the world of birds.

  • Not a “birder”? This workshop is also great for hikers, hunters, and nature enthusiasts of all sorts. Basically, if you spend time outside, you’ll learn a TON from this experience.

  • Beginners and experienced birders are invited to join. This course is designed to meet people at all levels. In fact, it’s not uncommon for folks to return to NEBLI for a 2nd or 3rd time!
