If you missed the September 2022 Monthly Meeting: No Birdbrains Here – The Latest on Bird Learning, Instinct and Intelligence, below is a link to a video of the program.
Birds can learn from consequences, as we and many other species can: Baby chicks learn to peck accurately, wild mockingbirds learn to recognize individual people, and pigeons learned to categorize art and music. Even instinctive behaviors like imprinting can be more flexible than scientists used to think, and songbird song appears particularly malleable. This talk will explore bird learning and intelligence, from everyday foraging, to learning through observing, to tool use. Such adaptability may be critical as wild birds attempt to adjust to the many threats they face. Scientists also take advantage of this powerful learning ability to help save endangered species. This program was presented by Susan M. Schneider, PHD.
