mountain chickadee on a nestCongratulations to Mia and Angela for being awarded Beverly Sears Graduate Student Grants to support their PhD research! Mia will be using her award to explore the effects of urnabization and elevation on chickadee nestling development and Angela will be using hers to expand on her recent findings that SGS1, an invasive form of avian malaria typically found in the eastern hemisphere, is infecting chickadees in Colorado. Thanks to the generous donors for making these funds avaliable.
