    About This Project

    Populations of the European starling develop distinct song dialects by imitating the calls and songs of other species. I am teaching wild starlings novel sounds, in order to experimentally alter local song culture. I will track the spread of each new sound across populations through social learning. This research will allow us to understand how culture develops, and the roles learning and vocal flexibility play in shaping dialect change over time.
