Exploring Bird Language: Fun Nature Games In This Book Endorsed By Jon Young
Do you hear those bird alarm calls? Who is that sneaking through the bushes? Is it the fox? Is the neighborhood cat? You can understand the secret movements of wild animals when you learn the language of the birds.
I love bird language because it’s the one nature skill that’s responsible for almost all of my close encounters with wildlife like owls, bobcats, foxes, raccoons, etc.
One of the biggest challenges when I first got interested in bird language was the severe lack of good resources that could help me learn. I ended up having to travel long distances and spending ridiculous amounts of money just to get my questions answered.
I know not everyone can do that just to satisfy their curiosity about this unique skill. You might only have a slight interest in bird language, or you might be an educator who just wants to find the next edge for helping kids connect with nature.
Well, I have something very exciting to share with you today because…
I got an email just the other day from a fascinating nature therapist in the UK who has written a book of games, illustrations and examples that provide great demonstrations of how bird language really works!
I know A LOT of my website visitors will be VERY interested in this book because it makes learning bird language so easy. This is a great resource for trackers and nature lovers who want to learn bird language… and for educators/mentors who want to really share bird language with their students.

My Own Personal Review:
I had a chance to sit down and take a good look at one of the games in the book and the first thing that hit me is, “Wow, this would be amazing for nature educators.”
I’ve played these sorts of games with kids before and as you might imagine, they love it!
Then I thought about all the people out there running summer camps or after school programs and the intense need they have to constantly come up with new & engaging activities.
For a lot of those programs bird language is a big blind spot. This book definitely solves that problem.
The thing I love about these games & colorful diagrams is that you don’t need to know anything about bird language in order to use them. If all you did was follow the instructions I really believe that these games would teach you a lot of what you need to know. The best part is that these games would definitely work with kids and adults of all ages.
The information shared in this book will improve your understanding of bird language as well as give you simple, easy steps to help you pass it on to others. It’s an essential ingredient for raising the next generation of happy, healthy nature connected people. Perfect for parents, educators, mentors, trackers & nature enthusiasts. If you’re into bird language then you need this book!

What Others Are Saying…
Well here it is and not before time!
The second in the series of Geoffrey’s “Discover Nature Awareness” books. Geoffrey has captured in his books the spirit and excitement that can be found in nature. Along with the first this book contains a series of games, lessons and skills all rolled into one to spark the imagination of anyone however proficient, passionate or sceptical of nature as a healer and teacher.
“Nature Deficit Disorder” is a spine chilling phrase used today in our modern “separated from nature” society and I personally think that Geoffrey has produced a cure! Geoffrey has put his wisdom and passion into this book and his enthusiasm is evident to enable and empower you as a reader and owner of this book to ignite that spark in someone’s imagination and use the games held with in to open up a new window into the Natural world to someone who needs it, with Geoffrey’s help you can make that difference to someone’s life.”

Discover Nature Awareness helped me to straighten out my ideas on how to present the subject to my own students.
Geoffrey’s detailed descriptions of the games still leave a lot of room for my own interpretation and adaptation while clearly stating the core elements. Although my own focus is on wilderness living, I find the therapeutic insights, qualities and results of the games Geoffrey describes fascinating.
Clearly, even if you have no issues what so ever, you can’t get too much of this type of ‘medicine’. In my view, re-establishing people’s link to nature is always a healing process. It has been an absolute joy reading this book and it provided me with valuable new insights that I can use in my work and personal life. Thank you very much Geoffrey!”

In these days of almost total urbanisation and a divorce of the majority from any form of Natural Environment, the lessons that Nature can teach us are being missed by too many. This can negatively affect the development, equilibrium and life experience of the individual and inhibit their ability to become, or be, the most rounded person that their potential can aspire to being. Geoffrey’s books address this problem with a spirit of fun, involvement and exploration, enabling the participants to integrate the “Natural” into their experiences of life.
Geoffrey’s first book was a major eye opener into the possibilities of discovering Nature Awareness with games suitable for adults and children of a wide age range (my copy is getting that “aged” look that only a well-used teaching resource can acquire) and this new volume continues to provide games ideas for children and adults to participate in and learn and develop without necessarily realising that they ARE learning!…
I have played a number of the games that appear in Geoffrey’s books and have found them well explained and with all the advice needed to help them run smoothly with maximum positive outcome. Some I have yet to explore – but await the opportunity to play them with a confidence in their being fun, constructive and with the potential to enhance a participant’s development.
I have yet to play any of the games without it provoking a positive response from all involved!”
John Fenna – Bushcraft Instructor
I was extremely interested in the games highlighted in Geoffrey’s book. I liked his detailed explanation of how to run the games, the expected outcomes, and especially his own experiences when running the games.
It is quite obvious that Geoffrey has an exquisite affinity with nature, and he is passionate about passing the message across for the benefit of those either requiring therapeutic interventions or those just wanting to utilise nature’s playground.
Even if you have seen some of the games before, you may want to consider Geoffrey’s observations as you will soon realise there may be new aspects to explore with your own participants. My only question? When’s the next book due out?”
