Pure Montana Tales presents: Animal Warning Systems with Erick Greene - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
I need a Red-tailed Hawk robot for the CA Ground Squirrels!
Is there a proximity pecking order in mobbing events?
We don’t have stellar jays here in Ontario as far as I know, but lots of blue jays, is their alarm call the same?
I witnessed a Mourning Dove freeze while sitting on a bird feeder that was really too small for it. All the small birds had fled, the rest of the Dove flock had fled, and he was stuck on the feeder. He froze for 8 minutes, never moved at all, and then left over the top of my house. The nearby raptor was probably a Coopers Hawk, common in my neighborhood.
What can we do to persuade you to do a Molli class?
how do you measure response intensity?
Thank you, Dr. Greene! This was so informative!!
Wow that’s awesome! Thank you, see you tomorrow in class!
Thanks from NC!

Thank you from Louisiana
So awesome! Incredible research. Thank you Erick!!
Thank you Erick for your Rockstar science and amazing presentation this evening. We are so fortunate to have your insights and amazing observations, from here in our backyards and woods to the global scale.
Are there different bird vocalizations in response to ground predators?
When do you think IRIS will return?
Is there a mammal danger call that birds respond to?
Is extremely good eyesight typical in forest birds in general because you mentioned them spotting flying raptors.

Thank you from NC..
Thank you, Erick! Amazing research and very helpful to birders in the field. I'm in awe of how little we know about animal communication and their secret lives. Keep up the great work.
It seems like chickadees make a chicka dee dee dee call when I come out of the house. Are people considered dangerous? How to distinguish between normal conversation and alarm calls?
This is fascinating! Thank you for sharing your studies!
Also - this presentation has been recorded, so if you'd like to watch again or share with fellow bird lovers, we hope you do! It will be available on our website soon and we will also share with all registrants via email. Thanks again, all!
After a raptor makes a kill, do the forest sounds return to normal quickly?
Fascinating studies and a great presentation. Thanks so much Eric and Elaine and Pure Montana Tales!
The musician (Ben) mentioned in the video about the rap and the NYTimes articles is now coordinating with the Cornell Ornithology lab to do zoom presentations about the bio-acoustics of various animals—birds, whales, gibbons, etc.— in which he creates the same sort of music in the video shown tonight. Those were my first intro to bio-acoustics. Tonight’s event added a great deal. Excellent presentation. Thank you!
Thanks Bro! Always fascinating!
Thanks so much. I'll share the link to the website video with others!
Thank you for a very interesting session. So much more to learn.
Great presentation! Thanks so much for sharing.
Thank you Erick! Great seeing you!
Great presentation! I’m in the woods everyday listening to the birds in South Carolina and have observed some of the behaviors of the birds alarm system. It was great to see you Erick. My Scottish Terrier was very impressed with the bird calls. He went nuts with the Rap song. Take care.
Do the medium birds know the difference between and Osprey and a similar sized predator bird who might be interested in them?
ooo good osprey question above
Thank you so much Erick!
Sharon Leigh Miles
Thank you, Dr. Greene. A wonderful learning opportunity.
Thank you so much for this presentation!
Pure thoughts & a worthy mate for Iris. She needs another Stanley.
Again, thank you Eric...what a fantastic reminder to listen as the natural world speaks to us in so many ways.
Thank you so much. You have sparked my interest in birds through your osprey cam related work and furthered it here tonight.
Awesome presentation, thank you BC and CRC!
