When: Fri., Sept. 11, 7:30-9 p.m. 2015
Join the Redwood Region Audubon Society for a presentation entitled “Problem Solving in Wild Steller’s Jays.” Steller’s Jays often need to solve novel problems to access human food sources. Speaker Derek Harvey, a master’s student at the Humboldt State University Wildlife Department, studied innovative problem-solving in a color-banded population of Steller’s Jays in Arcata. The fascinating results of this study enhance our understanding of the role innovation plays in individual behavior and social learning in wild birds.
