Divas in the Treetops: When and Why Do Female Birds Sing?

“Divas in the Treetops: When and Why Do Female Birds Sing?”
Lauryn Benedict, Ph.D., University of Northern Colorado

Female bird song is more common and widespread than is generally appreciated. In this presentation, Dr. Lauryn Benedict will provide an overview of female bird song prevalence and variety. She will discuss what we can learn by studying the songs of female birds, and invite participants to consider becoming citizen scientists to help advance the field of ornithology.

Lauryn Benedict is Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado. She studies the vocalizations and behavior of wild birds, and she teaches courses on ornithology and animal diversity. Lauryn holds degrees from Cornell University and the University of California Berkeley.
