Female Bird Song: She sings, too!

May 2, 2023

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Did you ever wonder about female birds’ songs? Did you know that some female songbirds sing and some do not? Female bird song has been a subject matter that was not investigated in the past but is finally getting the attention it deserves. In recent years more studies have been dedicated to learning about female bird songs to understand their function and what they sound like.

Katie Schroeder, a Ph.D. candidate in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at UMASS-Amherst, and Monique Dumais, HBC Education Committee member, discuss female bird songs while focusing on songbirds. This presentation will focus on temperate zone songbirds and include a history of bird recordings, scientific studies, and which females sing, and which do not sing. A brief introduction to our presenters:  Katie has done extensive research on bird song as a part of her studies at UMASS.   Monique has taken up female bird song study learning to gain more knowledge about birds. Both will share what they have found and learned on this exciting subject matter.   Join us as we take you on a journey of female bird songs, why they are important, and how you can learn and record female bird songs.

Please register here. You will receive a zoom link the day before the workshop.
