The Secret Perfume of Birds - Livestream

Dark-eyed Junco

The widespread belief that most birds have little sense of smell is a myth. Birds can produce complex scent signals that communicate with other birds. Scents play an essential role in birds’ lives, including mate choice. Birds also use smell in foraging and navigation.

Danielle’s research has uncovered how birds produce scents. Come learn why cowbirds smell like cookies, and why Crested Auklet colonies have a tangerine scent.
