And to contrast the din of truck traffic and hum of HVAC you will now hear the Birds of Brooklyn! Fittingly, their current exhibition is all about migration.

The Birds of Brooklyn can now be heard on the other side of the river!

The next time you are visiting the High Line in Chelsea, take a short walk down 26th Street and LISTEN for the sounds of New York City’s displaced and by-gone birds– now installed at Mixed Greens ( 531 West 26th St, 1st Floor, NYC ).

Singing Out of Key

Recent study shows that the noise of the city really does affect our bird neighbors:

Steve Nowicki studies animal communication and says young songbirds learn from older ones, so after a while differences in style emerge. ”We know that birds can be attentive to very subtle differences in their songs in the context of choosing whom to mate with,” he says.

So if birds from the city can’t flirt with birds from the country anymore, “those birds are actually going to be less likely to mate with each other,” he says. “I mean, literally they’re going to stop being able to speak the same language.” >> Read more at npr.org
