Understanding Bird Song with David Lukas

June 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT


It is one thing to learn how to identify bird species by their songs but another thing altogether to examine how we understand the nuances and meanings of bird songs. This exciting presentation is an examination of how birds vocalize, what kinds of messages and strategies birds use with their vocalizations, and how we study bird songs. This is a fascinating topic and of interest to artists and nature journalers because bird songs can be visualized as shapes, colors, and patterns of lively energy. Knowing the stories behind these subtle nuances will help you think about and portray what you’re hearing in totally new ways.

David Lukas is a professional naturalist and author who also tells nature stories with photos and videos. Learn more about David Lukas here.
