Female Bird Song 7/15/21

from Golden Gate Audubon

Listen to Her Sing Featuring Nathan Pieplow
Thursday, July 15 7 p.m. via Zoom Free

Only male birds sing, right? WRONG! In fact, this widepread notion has a lot more to do with human cultural and geographic biases than it has to do with nature. In this presentation, Nathan Pieplow explores the often-overlooked songs of female birds. You’ll hear the pair duets of meadowlarks and blackbirds, the musical songs of female cardinals and orioles, and the distinctive song of the female Canyon Wren. In which species do females sing more often than males? And where did we even get this crazy idea that only male birds sing? Nathan Pieplow is author of The Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds, the most comprehsneive guide to the sounds of North American birds. He lives in Boulder, Colorado, where he teaches writing and rhetoric at the University of Colorado and helped develop the Colorado Birding Trail.
