Get to know the birds around you with a simple tool:
The nature journal.
You’ll learn and practice how to see more in nature, develop sharper awareness, improve your memory, spark curiosity, and improve quick sketching skills.
The focus will be HOW to see and enjoy birds, and record observations rather than about painting or drawing birds precisely.
You'll practice strategies to supercharge your capacity to learn more and retain the details more effectively.
I will introduce you to how I have learned bird songs by visually recording them (yes, drawing sounds!!), how to listen to their sounds and begin to understand them.
You’ll practice activities that awaken your senses, hone your bird awareness, develop naturalist and sketching skills, and tap into curiosity to enhance your learning.
The nature journal will be a tool to increase your capacity to discern differences for identification, record behaviors, track seasonal changes of your birds.
You’ll begin to cultivate an intuitive knowing of birds, and nurture a personal connection with these feathers friends.
Whether you’ve just sparked your interest in birds, or you are a long-time bird lover, everyone will benefit from these fun and effective strategies.
- No experience needed. Bring your curiosity and willingness to learn!
