The Genius of Birds

Acclaimed science and nature writer Jennifer Ackerman delves into cutting-edge research on the newly discovered brilliance of birds, revealing the science of their brains and behaviors.  Jennifer's illustrated talk will explore how birds make and use their own sophisticated tools, solve complex problems, navigate to places they've never been, demonstrate astonishing feats of memory, craft artistic creations, negotiate their social world, and communicate in ways that resemble language. Free. Come early to the Education Building as seating is limited.
