The Most Overlooked Birds in America: Females
October 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Female birds are typically more drab and inconspicuous than males, leading over time to an unconscious bias towards male birds in birdwatching, photography, and even in our ornithology knowledge. This talk explores the history of focus on male birds, female vocalizations, conservation implications of overlooking female birds, and female bird identification tips.
Joanna Wu is a PhD student studying female birds in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCLA. She previously worked at the National Audubon Society and is a member of the Galbatross Project, a group of birders, scientists, writers, and conservationists who are passionate about spreading awareness about female birds.
