I'm an ornithologist interested in studying the factors that influence survival in birds during migration and the non-breeding season. I'm currently the project leader for Project FeederWatch at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.  Project FeederWatch is a long-term study of the abundance and distribution of birds in winter in the United States and Canada.

Cornell's Shoals Marine Lab on Appledore Island, Maine is a remarkable place to learn about birds. Learn about my field ornithology course.
