Dr. Douglas Wacker is an Assistant Professor of Animal Behavior at UW Bothell studying the communication of a local crow population that boasts over 16,000 roosting individuals during the winter!

Please join us this April to learn what we know about crow calls, what we don't know, and how undergraduate research at the University of Washington is helping to unravel crow vocal communication.

Pre-Program Night Garden Parties

Our native plant demonstration garden has been started and is now in
need of some regular maintenance and care. Join me each month prior to
our Program Nights, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. to pick weeds, spread
mulch, water, or do whatever else our garden seems to need. Keep in
mind that daylight hours might be lacking in the winter months, so
bring a headlamp and appropriate gear for the weather. Then we can all
go in and enjoy the Program Night knowing that our garden is in order.
Please bring gloves and any tools that you enjoy using for weeding.

The mission of Eastside Audubon is to protect, preserve and enhance natural ecosystems and our communities for the benefit of birds, other wildlife and people.
