Mystery of Birds Seminar06/09/2012
Location: Calaveras Big Trees State Park --
Calaveras Big Trees State Park -- How do birds learn to sing beautiful songs? Why do they produce many different types of vocalizations?
These questions will be addressed this coming Saturday June 9 in a free seminar on the Mystery of Bird Songs presented by David Lukas. Lucas will share his insights into
the magical world of bird song-from the ways we study bird song to the anatomy of how birds produce sounds, and some of the social behavior that explains common bird vocalizations. Lucas is a naturalist and author who has been living in the Sierra Nevada and leading bird programs in California for nearly 20 years.
His newest book is "Sierra Nevada Birds", and it is the first comprehensive guide to all the birds that occur in the Sierra Nevada. The book will be available at the program.
The seminar will begin at 10 a.m. in Jack Knight Hall and continue outdoors on a short walk, for a total of about two hours. The seminar is free, provided by Calaveras Big Trees Assocation. Park admission is $8 per car.
