‘They Blinded Me with Science’ is joined this evening by Behavioral Ecology doctorial student Tracy Burkhard.  Tracy studies vocal communication in mammals, but her favorite subjects are singing mice.  Tracy’s research has taken her from the laboratories of UT to the mountains of Costa Rica in search of these crooning mammals.  Join us as we discuss how mice not only claim territory but also flirt with their potential mates through song, Tracy describes some of her more interesting mice hunting adventures, and the crew practices singing some of their favorite mouse songs!
