After plowing through a pile of applications by an impressive group of young biologists, I am pleased to present the newest crew members for the western scrub-jay / oak project. Kachina Rowland is from Oregon and attended Humboldt State. Spencer Schubert is from Illinois and attended St. Olaf's College in Minnesota. The two stood out with great experience and background, and especially the desire to conduct their own small research project. Starting in late August, we will make an effort at figuring out another piece of the jay-oak interaction puzzle. Exciting stuff!
Almost, our ambassador woodpecker, is ready to hang out with new friends...
