Uncovering the Secret World of a Secretive Seabird
This program is co-sponsored by Sierra Club Many Rivers Group. The Marbled Murrelet is a threatened seabird that inhabits Oregon's castal ares and can nest >40 miles inland within older forest, making it especially challenging for reserchers to understand its breeding ecology. In this presentation
Dr. Jim Rivers, lead scientist for the Oregon Marbled Murrelet Project, will discuss why murrelets are so unique, outline what it takes to locate active murrelet nests, and share recent findings from the project.
