Monday, November 5th-Song sparrows, Discovery Park by Chris Templeton

"I am generally interested in the evolution and ecological implications of
animal behavior. Although my research interests and projects are quite
diverse, the common theme seems to be related to understanding how organisms
obtain, communicate, and use information in their environments. I began
graduate studies at the University of Washington in 2003 where I work in
Mike Beecher's Lab. My dissertation research is focused on understanding how
young birds learn to sing and communicate with their songs. In particular,
I'm examining the importance of social interactions for song learning in
song sparrows (Melospiza melodia)."

Monthly Membership Meetings are held the first Monday of the month (except
July, August, & September). They are held at the Center for Urban
Horticulture on the University of Washington campus, 3501 NE 41st St.,
Seattle, and are open to all. The social begins at 7:00 p.m. and the program
starts at 7:30 p.m.

Directions: From I-5 take SR520 East. Take the Montlake Blvd NE exit and
turn North towards the University of Washington campus. Stay in right lane
and drive North on Montlake Blvd (over the bridge and past the stadium).
The road will curve to the right around the Montlake Fill and merges with NE
45th St. You will quickly approach a 5 way intersection. At the
intersection turn right onto Mary Gates Memorial Drive. The Center for
Urban Horticulture is 2 long blocks down on the right. There is plenty of
free parking at the facility. We use the main meeting room, the backside of
which faces the road. The following bus routes stop at NE 45th and Mary
