Dear Bioacoustics List Members,
Did you know San Francisco's sparrows have different dialects? We thought you might be interested in Bay Nature's fascinating Jan-March 2016 article about San Francisco's white-crowned sparrows and their struggle to survive the city's increasingly noisy landscape.
Learn about the pioneering research on these birds by California Academy of Science's legendary ornithologist Luis Baptista, aka "The Sparrowman of Golden Gate Park", and the plucky researchers who picked up where he left off after his untimely death to learn how the dialects have evolved to compete with the sounds of car alarms, traffic, and other persistent city sounds.
Click here to read the article and listen to the variety of white-crowned sparrow dialects past and present:
Enjoy the article, and please share it widely!
