Lovely Loons with Dr. Lauren Wentz

Dr. Lauren Wentz, Professor of Biology at the UW-Eau Claire – Barron County, has studied loons and their behavior for more than 30 years, with field studies in northern Wisconsin, the U.P. of Michigan, and southcentral Alaska. Her particular expertise is in the analysis of bird sounds (bioacoustics), but she has a passion for understanding the ecological landscapes in which birds vocalize.
