  The Flying Deer Nature Center in New Lebanon, NY has teamed up with Mass Audubon's Berkshire Sanctuaries for two presentations this week.

The first is Deep Nature Connection: An Evening Talk with Jon Young which will take place on Friday, April 24 at the Lenox Community Center. For 26 years, Jon has served as a mentor in the art of understanding bird and animal language, leading communities worldwide to recover these skills.

The second event is Song of the Forest, a one-day workshop for adults and kids at at Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary in Lenox, MA taking place on Sunday, April 26. Bird Language gives us insight into the subtle goings-on in nature—including right in our backyards.

    

  Birds are highly intelligent animals, yet their intelligence is dramatically different from our own and has been little understood. As scientists come to understand more about the secrets of bird life, they are unlocking fascinating insights into memory, game theory, and the nature of intelligence itself.

The Thing with Feathers explores the astonishing homing abilities of pigeons, the good deeds of fairy-wrens, the influential flocking abilities of starlings, the deft artistry of bowerbirds, the extraordinary memories of nutcrackers, the lifelong loves of albatross, and other mysteries—revealing why birds do what they do, and offering a glimpse into our own nature.

    In the spring of 2010, one lone Steppe Eagle was shot down on a firing range in Afghanistan. Fortunately, help was available from former Army Ranger Scott Hickman and his buddy, Navy SEAL Greg Wright, who took him in and gave him the healing he needed. They named him Mitch.
