“Cacophony of Caws: The Crows of Puget Sound,” a Pub Night Talk cosponsored by UW Bothell and McMenamins. Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Doors open at 6pm, program 7 - 8:30pm

Hayne’s Hall, McMenamins Anderson School, 18607 Bothell Way NE, Bothell

Every evening thousands of crows gather on the UW Bothell campus in a cacophony of caws.

Outside of academics, the University of Washington Bothell is perhaps most well-known for a nightly phenomenon of nature: As many as 16,000 crows fly in at dusk and land on various buildings and sports fields before roosting in the wetlands that comprise 58 acres of the campus.

Wacker is leading research into what the crows might be saying to each other before roosting in the wetlands.

Free and open to the public, all ages welcome. Seating: first come, first served. Talk followed by Q/A.

UW Bothell Pub Night schedules regular speakers.
