Description

Take a virtual tour of Acadia National Park in this exhibit, which includes a specimen of every bird found in New England. Interactive exhibits offer insight into bird behavior, and New England birders will also find a useful bird "dictionary."

Birds naturally detect predators. Their sounds and movements indicate hidden predators lurking around them all the time. Here, you can learn how to interpret the bird language you hear being chirped just outside your window at home.

Help the FBI solve some tough cases in Acadia National Park. Fly into the forest in a bird language computer game that puts you along a park nature trail. Try out the "Sneaking Corridor" to test your stalking skills, and see if you can sneak past a robin without setting off its alarm call. If you make it past the robin, you're ready to learn bird language.
