This week we’re dis­cussing birds, behav­iour, and chick­adees. How do you look at behav­iour­al traits in birds, how dif­fer­ent birds val­ue infor­ma­tion gath­er­ing, and how those traits affect for­ag­ing? Mar­i­on Kil­go­ur speaks to Dr. Kim Math­ot, the Cana­da Research Chair in Inte­gra­tive Ecol­o­gy, about how and why birds make deci­sions, and how indi­vid­u­als val­ue and act on infor­ma­tion, how they share infor­ma­tion with­in groups, and what val­ue that infor­ma­tion has in man­ag­ing uncer­tain­ty. Chick­adees calls record­ed by Jonathon Jongs­ma, from xeno-canto.
