The Musicality of Birds
By Geoff Sample
In this talk Geoff explores the different kinds of songs we find in birds, with a focus on European species, and outlines the behavioural ecology that has shaped the various styles of species songs. From the complex hidden structures of skylark song to the simple repetitive patterns of great tits and the frenetic improvisations of marsh warblers, we reveal the musicality of birds and its role in their lives.
