Where: Dargan's Irish Pub & Restaurant, 18 E. Ortega St., Santa Barbara

Cost: Free

Age limit: 21+

Description:

A recent discovery about bird brain anatomy has overturned a century-old assumption that bird brains were primitive versions of mammalian brains. What are birds doing with this brain power? Complex cognitive abilities help some species solve environmental and social problems.
