OYSTERVILLE — Sociologist Dr. Madeline A. Kalbach’s academic interest is in population studies dealing with either birds or people. On Thursday, Nov. 15, in keeping with the ‘Voices’ theme of this fall’s Schoolhouse Lecture Series, she will be focusing on the many ways in which birds communicate — with us and among themselves.
“Their voices are varied, ranging from appearance to where they are found,” she said. “We will explore some of the ways that birds make their voices heard so that we can identify them as they speak to us.” She will accompany her talk with photos taken on the Peninsula. The talk will begin at 10 a.m., at the Oysterville Schoolhouse and is the final talk of the fall 2018 series.
Kalbach is a frequently contributes articles and photographs to Friends of Willapa Wildlife Refuge monthly newsletter, to the Chinook Observer, and to KMUN nature notes. In August she co-authored “Common Birds of the Long Beach Peninsula” with Susan A. Stauffer.
