The Music of Nature: Bird Sound
(with Naturalist, Mary Jo Graham)
Sunday, March 8 from 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Our own sense of music is rooted in the sounds of the natural world. Likely there is nothing more musically inspiring to humankind than the sounds which emanate from our feathered friends, the Birds. In this lecture, we’ll discuss the various avian sounds and vocalizations, paying special attention to their meaning and purpose. We’ll delve into cross-species “language” and spend a bit of time reveling in the beauty these amazing beings bring to our existence. You’ll come away ready for the return of bird song as the seasons progress.
Mary Jo is founder and director of Oakmoss Education, which works to bring people and nature into harmony through workshops, lectures and field outings. Ms. Graham is also an Assistant Professor in the Physics Department at SUNY Erie teaching Environmental Science and Field Ecology.
