Welcome to my web page. My students and I do research in Behavioral Ecology. Most but not all of us work on social and reproductive behavior in birds. We use a variety of approaches to better understand why animals behave in the ways they do. We observe marked individuals in the field and in captivity, manipulate important variables to test their effects on behavior, and use DNA techniques to better understand the causes and consequences of particular behaviors. Check out our web page and learn more about who we are and what we are doing.
