Spotlight on Young Bird Researchers

March 29, 2016
New self-paced course: Learn How to Identify Bird Songs, Click to Learn More

Learn about three young Cornell researchers’ work. Conor Taff discusses the evolution of the elaborate songs and plumage of male Common Yellowthroats; Sahas Barve from India talks about the coping mechanisms birds use to survive high in the Himalayas; and undergraduate Taylor Heaton Crisologo spotlights strategies used by Herring Gulls to defend their nests and protect their chicks.

The talk took place on March 21, 2016. It is part of the Cornell Lab’s long-running Monday Night Seminar series, a tradition established decades ago by Lab founder Dr. Arthur Allen.
