Hi AMAfeed! My name is Christa and I'm an ornithologist, or bird biologist. My most recent work focused on bluebirds and other cavity nesting birds in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Ask me anything!
Hi Everyone! My goal with this AMA is to get others engaged in topics about bird conservation and science. Why birds? Well, not only are they my favorite animals, birds are great indicators of health in the environments in which they live. In Washington State, I worked as a biologist monitoring western bluebirds and other cavity nesting birds (among others) and managing a bird box program on a military installation. Feel free to ask questions about birds in general, how man-made cavities benefit certain birds, and more... Ask me anything!
Reason you believe this topic would be a great choice for an AMA:
Getting others excited about bird biology is awesome because we all see and hear birds on a daily basis... even in cities!
Reason you believe you will be a great host to speak on this topic:
I am a trained avian ecologist and bird biologist, and I have been working in my field for approximately 5 years.
