Have you ever wondered how birds warn each other about danger?

Island School alumna Nora Carlson, a research scientist at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, will share her experiences researching real life animal behavior and vocalization in a special presentation, “Predator! – How Birds Talk to Each Other,” at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 13 at the Island School Library (8553 NE Day Road).

The event is free and all are welcome to attend.

Carlson’s interactive games with students involve calls, animals and spectrograms (visual representations of sound).

The Island School is an independent school educating students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
