Migration in Pine Siskins
Facultative migrations, which occur relatively unpredictably in time and space, are an important but understudied form of migration. Dr. Heather Watts, Associate Professor in the School of Biological Sciences at Washington State University, will discuss research being conducted with pine siskins, a nomadic and irruptive finch. The goal of the research is better understanding of migrations, particularly the environmental cues that birds use to time facultative migrations. Dr. Watts recently relocated her lab to WSU, where she conducts research at the interface of animal behavior, physiology, ecology, and evolution. The lab currently focuses primarily on songbirds, which are particularly well-suited for addressing their research questions and to the lab’s approach of combining field and laboratory studies. She is currently recruiting graduate students, both MS and PhD. This program is sponsored by Palouse Audubon Society and is free and open to the public.
