Event Description: 

While frequently seen in forests and backyard gardens, it is amazing just how much of songbird behavior is still being decoded. This talk will explore new research from the University of Connecticut on how bird behavior adapts to deal with predators. Discover how scientific methods and new technology like wildlife cameras can help us understand the bird’s world and how we can best help these species.

Benjamin Ranelli is a senior at the University of Connecticut studying ecology and evolutionary biology. For the last two years, he has studied ovenbird behavior with the help of PhD candidate Eliza Grames and Dr. Chris Elphick.
