Did you know seagulls evolved a loud and raucous cry so they could be heard over the crash of waves and surf? Or that grassland songbirds evolved a buzzing and trilling call so they could be heard through the turbulence and wind shear of the open prairie? Today, we speak with award-winning biologist David George Haskell, author of the critically acclaimed book, Sounds Wild And Broken, about the evolution of bird song. Join Catherine Greenleaf, a certified wildlife rehabilitator with 20 years of experience rescuing and rehabilitating injured wild birds, for twice-monthly discussions about restoring native habitat and helping the birds in your backyard.
