Summer Research Projects

Working on a few research projects this summer including

  • surveying Pennsylvania statet game lands that were recently burned for Golden-winged Warblers
  • monitoring Wood Thrush nests
  • DNA barcoding insects that were collected that past three years
  • Quantifying the effect of deer on understory vegetation

I’m primarily focused on the bird surveys. Getting up at 4 AM isn’t fun but I love the early mornings in the woods. I have a team of several undergraduate students looking for nests and doing the DNA barcoding. I set a senior capstone team on the deer browsing project.

It’s a challenge to keep everything going but the students are fantastic!

Welcome to Concrete Ornithology

Welcome to Concrete Ornithology

Hi everyone, ¬†welcome to Concrete Ornithology. I used to blog through the Google app but it doesn’t play nice with the iphone. Blogger was free and did the job but I’m hoping that by paying for this I’ll blog more often.

I mostly blog about my ecological research. field trips, and academic life but I’ll post random stuff as well.
