Seminar: The Talented Superb Lyrebird
When: March 2, 7:30 p.m. Where: Cornell Lab of Ornithology, 159 Sapsucker Woods Road, Ithaca Speaker: Dr. Anastasia H. Dalziell, Cornell Lab of Ornithology Description: Australia’s Superb Lyrebird is famous for the male’s remarkable ability to mimic a wide variety of sounds, from the songs of other bird species to chainsaws, camera shutters, car alarms, and more. Dr. Anastasia Dalziell will share research results showing that the vocal mimicry by male lyrebirds is even more spectacular and bizarre than previously thought. Males also coordinate their songs with elaborate “dance moves” on carefully constructed dance platforms to attract a mate. Female lyrebirds have unexpectedly complex displays as well. You’ll hear recordings and see videos of behaviors previously undescribed in this fascinating species. Admission: Free Contact: 800-843-2473,

Nerissa & Katryna Nields in Concert
The Nields 8 pm, Saturday, 7 March 2015 Hollis Cornell Auditorium, Goldwin Smith Hall, Cornell University Arts Quad, East Ave. Ithaca, NY 14851 In the 1990s, Nerissa and Katryna Nields formed a five-member band and were festival darlings at Falcon Ridge and Lilith Fair, admired for folk-rock-pop harmonies, deep and quirky songs, and high energy. The Boston Globe declared: “The Nields are young. They are hip. They are hot.” Today, many gigs and 17 CDs later, raising their children in western Massachusetts, they champion traditional community singing, refashioning old songs with great love. Much of their original material is inspired by Appalachian ballads, old-timey hollers, sea chanteys, and spirituals. They’ve released four CDs (and books) for children, as well as recordings that look honestly at the hard pulls of marriage, child-rearing, artistry, and commitment to the larger world. Their 2015 release, XVII, honors their hero, Pete Seeger. They promise their audiences: “You will sing. You will dance. You will not regret it.” Tickets: Ithaca Guitar Works, Autumn Leaves, Greenstar Market, Bound for Glory, online at and at the door. $15 adv./$17 door; $3 rebate for members, seniors, teens. Cornell students $5. Children free. Info: web or 607-351-1845.
