Understanding Bird Songs: Nature Matters
May 6, 2021
Spring is in the air and birds are beginning to sing all around us. We are captivated by these songs and humans have marveled at bird songs since the beginning of time, but how can we begin to understand the many complex vocalizations that birds make? In this presentation, David Lukas will discuss how birds produce their songs and calls, how birds use these vocalizations in different settings, and how we study bird songs. Expect to come away from this presentation with a deeper understanding of the bird songs you hear this spring.
This free event is online. The 7 p.m. presentation takes place May 13 online via Facebook Live on Fort George Brewery’s Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/FortGeorgeBrewery/
David Lukas is a bird expert and author who has written many books and articles about birds. His most recent book, Language Making Nature explores how we can create new words for speaking of the natural world. More of his work can be found at http://www.lukasguides.com.
