Specific Interests

My research focuses on group dynamics and nest site selection in colonially-breeding Pinyon Jays in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am investigating their renesting behavior, specifically the establishment of satellite colonies. Other interests include ecology in the western United States and avian migration.
