Bird diversity abounds on campus in the Monterey Pine forest and along our nearby coastline. What behaviors can be discovered about our campus-resident crows? How do survival strategies differ between birds of the forest compared to the coast? In this course, students will participate in place-based bird studies, which will include the identification and photography of local bird species during our frequent field trips to local birding hot spots. Classes and labs will further investigate bird evolution, morphology, ecology, and behavior.
