This fourth year course will provide students with a solid understanding of the ecology and biology of birds. Classroom topics will cover the origins of birds, the evolution of feathers and flight, several aspects of behaviour and communication (including vocalization, migration, and social interactions), breeding systems, mate choice, nesting and incubation, parental care of offspring, and several aspects of population dynamics such as growth and regulation of populations, factors that affect species diversity, and the state of bird populations and conservation around the world. The laboratory component will include museum and field based activities that will allow the student to learn how to identify birds by sight and sound (with emphasis on the birds of Michigan and North America), and familiarize themselves with several methods used in the study of birds.
