This is the birdsong research site for Dr. Gerald Hough, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences and Psychology at Rowan University, Glassboro NJ. This will be the respository of information for projects involving the endangered group of birds found only in Hawaii, the honeycreepers. Please select one of the tabs on the left to learn more about these fascinating birds, their songs, and the current research in the evolution of song in these birds. It is my belief that these birds may be one of the best examples of language divergence and evolution in the animal world. If you have any recordings of these organisms, please contact me via e-mail. As it is hard for me to get to the islands to capture the songs of these amazing birds, I must rely on those folks in the islands who have the ability to go out and capture songs to continue my research. Thank you!
