Virtual September Membership Meeting: Singing Hummingbird Feathers and the Quiet Flight of Owls and Other Birds
Tuesday 07 September 2021, 07:30pm
Hits : 228

Presenter: Dr. Chris Clark
Location: Virtual Meeting via Zoom

Dr. Chris Clark will present ongoing research in his lab, starting with work on how hummingbirds make sounds with their tail-feathers during courtship displays. Then he will shift to ongoing research he is conducting on why owls have evolved to fly quietly.

Dr. Clark grew up in Seattle where he started birdwatching at age 15. After graduating from Washington State University with a degree in Zoology, he received his Ph.D. in the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at UC Berkeley in 2009. He then worked in the Peabody Museum at Yale University before starting a faculty position in the Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology department at UC Riverside.
