Webinar: How Chickadees Use Their Brains to Hide Seeds and Survive Harsh Winters
January 11 at 1:00 pm–2:00 pm
Every fall, chickadees hide tens of thousands of food items, counting on these “cached” seeds to see them through harsh winters, deep snow, and subzero temperatures. But how does a tiny bird weighing only half an ounce remember where they’ve stashed all their food? Join our conversation with researchers Dr. Carrie Branch and Benjamin Sonnenberg as they reveal how Mountain Chickadees make it through to springtime with the help of cached food, enviable memory skills, and some surprises when it comes to choosing mates and building nests. We’ll also spend time answering your questions about these energetic birds during a live Q&A.
