ReWilding Conversations Episode 14:
People are sometimes surprised when I say that bird language is a survival skill.
Just imagine what it would be like to live on planet earth 25,000 years ago, surrounded by large predators like Smilodon (Sabre toothed cats) and instant danger hiding behind every bush.
Your community would be a small troop of human survivors with incredible wild instincts developed since birth.
Now consider this:
As a human being, you can’t run from danger fast enough once it spots you… and you also can’t outrun your prey while hunting.
Those are not great odds.
But you CAN outsmart both predator and prey by using the universal bird alarm network.
It happens in every jungle, forest, field & desert on the planet… yet in actual practice almost no memory remains of how to use bird language to track animals from long-distances.
So today we’re talking about the lost art of bird language.
It’s NOT JUST about birds… it’s really more about knowing the wildlife and your entire landscape from a very deep, holistic and integrated perspective.
This skill will absolutely blow your mind when you realize the implications and applications.
So let’s preserve this lost art and while we’re at it awaken our deepest survival instincts.
