s class on Bird Song will be on the 19th and 22nd of November rather than on

How Do Birds Sing, and Why?
With George Bentley, Ph.D., Department of Zoology, University of Washington

Do you ever wonder why some birds sing and others just call? Would you like
to know how songbirds produce such melodious tunes? What about the dawn
chorus? Sexual attraction? Aggression? No, it’s not a Shakespearian tragedy,
just the day-to-day life of songbirds. Come and learn about the anatomy and
physiology of birdsong, from specialized organs to highly-evolved brains.
Find out how song can cause hormones to surge. This class will present an
overview of the “hows” and “whys” of vocal communication in birds.

Class: Tuesday, November 19th and Friday, November 22nd from 7:00-9:00 pm
Location: Douglas Classroom, CUH
Cost: $40 members, $55 non-members
Class limited to 40 participants
