Date: 2/13/20 12:56 am From: Nadine Drisseq <drisseq.n...> Subject: [Tweeters] March's WOS Meeting: Something to Crow About
Mark your calendars for WOS meeting, Monday, March 2nd 2020!
‘Something to Crow About’
with Dr Kaeli Swift, Ph.D.
Crows and ravens are found on nearly every continent where they routinely
infiltrate the hearts and minds of the humans who share their space. Dr.
Kaeli Swift will discuss some of the general aspects about crows that
contribute to our affinity (and sometimes hatred) for them, with a
particular emphasis on concepts that are the most frequent questions people
have about crows including play, tool use, communal roosting and funerals.
Dr. Swift received her Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 2018,
where she studied American crow thanatology. She is currently a lecturer in
the UW’s School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, where she teaches
ornithology, conservation and wildlife ecology. You can read her popular
science articles on her blog - corvidresearch.blog. You can also find her
on twitter, instagram, and facebook at the @corvidresearch handle.
WOS meetings are held the first Monday of the month, Oct-June at
The Center for Urban Horticulture, 3501 NE 41st ST Seattle, 98105.
