Presenter: Lauryn Benedict, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado
Do female birds sing? They certainly do. Female bird song is more common and widespread than is generally appreciated. This presentation will offer an overview of the diversity of female songs, including many from North America and a few used in spectacular partner duets. Lauryn will discuss what can be learned from studying the songs of female birds, and explain how citizen scientists can help advance the field by looking for singing females in their own backyards.
