Mocking Jays: Bird Talk @ Pleasant St. Books Tonight

Ever wonder how mocking birds can be such great imitators? Tonight at Pleasant Street Books, a researcher from Elon University in North Carolina will share his research into the science of vocal imitation.

The talk (we would presume with lots of birdy audio) will be from 7pm to 8pm at Pleasant Street Books at 48 Pleasant Street. Here’s a little mocking-bird song for you!

    Did you know Thomas Jefferson was fond of mockingbirds and kept them as pets?
