The Science of…Animal Sounds & Calls

September 16 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Virtual Event
“Who cooks for you?” Who cooks for you all?” Recognize this call? Clearly it is a Barred Owl! Just like humans, animals have adapted many ways of communicating with each other. Birds use songs, coyote may yip, snakes may hiss, and insects may chirp. These may be warning calls, to defend their territory, or they may be calling to find a potential mate. Either way, almost all animals make noise and do so for a reason. In this episode we will look at the science behind why animals call and how they physically make the calls they do. Some animals make more calls than others and some have no vocal chords…why? Well, join us and find out!
