Learning about bird behavior is a wonderful gateway to a greater understanding about all things living. Whether you’re in a park, hiking a trail or sitting in your yard, the birds are communicating to you! Bird Behavior includes a series of sounds and movements that fellow birds and all other wildlife understand. Their language serves as warning systems for the whole ecosystem.
