The Josh Hull Laboratory at UC Davis is primarily focused on genetics, behavior, ecology and conservation of birds. On March 21st, graduate students from the Hull Lab–Shannon Skalos, Ryan Bourbour, Emily Abernathy and Chris Tyson, will discuss their diverse research projects taking place across California. Their respective topics are: reproductive, foraging and movement ecology of Northern Harriers in Suisun Marsh, CA; prey selection in migrating Sharp-shinned Hawks and Merlins; rodenticide exposure in Red-tailed Hawks along the Pacific Coast; and long-term pair bonds in Cassin’s Auklets breeding on Southeast Farallon Island. Join us for these presentations to learn more about the ecology of some of California’s native birds.
The Yolo Audubon monthly meeting will take place at the Davis Senior Center (646 A St, Davis, CA 95616). The program starts at 7:30 p.m., but everyone is invited for refreshments and conversation at 7:00.
