SRP: Screech and Hoot The Science of Bird Communication

Why do owls hoot? What are those hawks talking about? How do scientists find out what birds are saying? Join Vermont Institute of Natural Science this summer at your library and meet some of these talkative hawks, falcons, and owls up close! We’ll practice identifying raptors by their calls, learn what these vocalizations might mean, and how they are made. You’ve never heard bird song like this.

All ages welcome, sign up required. Sign up will begin May 29.
