As mostly visual creatures, we often take sound for granted, but there is a whole incredible world of vibrations going on around us. In this Zoom program, Co-Director Eleanor Harris, Ph.D., will explain how natural sounds are made and how both human and non-human animals hear them. From why birds sing in the morning to how insects hear with their legs, thinking about sounds in nature might change the way you see and hear the world around you. A Zoom link will be emailed to participants shortly before the program.

Join Executive Director Bert Harris to hear the latest on our American Kestrel research. We have been studying these declining falcons for three years in collaboration with Joe Kolowski from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and Alan Williams. Dr. Harris will present on our results from the 2023 field season and what they tell us about how to manage land for these charismatic animals. The work is funded by the Raines Family Fund, BAND Foundation, Nick Lapham, the Virginia Society of Ornithology, the Washington Biologists Field Club, and Janine Moseley. We will send a link to the Zoom meeting a few days prior to the talk. Please make sure your email address is up to date!
