Join the Chapel Hill Bird Club for their regular monthly meeting at Binkley Baptist Church in Chapel Hill. May’s featured speaker, Dave Gammon, will talk about vocal mimicry in Northern Mockingbirds. With their remarkable ability to imitate dozens of species, mockingbirds have fascinated humans for millennia. Despite this fascination, scientists are only beginning to address basic questions of vocal mimicry. Dave Gammon, a bird biologist from Elon University, has studied vocal mimicry in Northern Mockingbirds for nearly a decade and will present some of his recent findings of this ‘many-tongued’ mimic.
