Rosy-Finch Sampling Localities
AOS Graduate Presentations

Kathryn, Erik, and Angela all presented their ongoing research at the annual meeting of the American Ornithological Society in Tucson. Erik and Angela both presented posters on their plans for the upcoming field season and their broader thesis work, and Kathryn gave a talk about the influence of human disturbances on species interactions, which included some preliminary chickadee data. We are excited to send Erik off to the mountains in Idaho and Montana to evaluate the rosy-finch species complex (image to the right), and to see the outcomes of Angela’s investigation into the effects of parasites on the success of hybrid chickadees.
