Why birds sing, and why birdsong helps us understand the hows and whys of animal behavior. Dr. Rindy Anderson studies behavioral ecology, seeking to understand how social, developmental, and environmental factors shape the ways that wild animals behave. In this talk, Dr. Anderson will speak about her research on the social behavior of songbirds and why birdsong is an excellent model system for studying how and why animals do what they do.
