Do acorn woodpeckers make granaries or do granaries make acorn woodpeckers?
We will plunge into the complicated social lives of acorn woodpeckers. How they build granaries and what they will do to win access to a big granary. Using cutting-edge radio tracking technology and over 45 years of demographic data, we will learn how these common backyard birds cooperate with close relatives to raise offspring and eavesdrop on neighbors to gain social information. Finally we will look briefly at how fire may be affecting the socio-biology of this enigmatic bird of the Californian oak savannah.
