Our latest Science On Screen® presentation is an old favorite. Alfred Hitchcock’s THE BIRDS is a suspense thriller that plunges viewers into a world where birds turn against humanity. What’s the deal with these birds? That’s the question we will turn over to our expert panel — including Carlos A. Botero, Ph.D., Associate Professor Department of Integrative Biology, and Dr. Lucas Legendre, Research Associate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin — who will share some of the recent science about avian evolution and behavior on Tuesday, March 26.

Science on Screen® is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
