A Broad-winged hawk (Buteo platypterus) receives a weekly condition check by clinic volunteer staff. During this intermediate phase of treatment birds begin building up their flight stamina in small outdoor aviaries while having their vitals monitored by staff. #avianmedicine #avianconservation #broadwingedhawk

The Harris hawk at the Birds of Prey exhibit, pretty awesome. #awendaw #avianconservation #birdsofinstagram #birdsofprey

A confluence of ecological issues. This fledgling Scaly-breasted Munia (aka Spice Finch) was a victim of the #2 biggest unnatural COD in birds - window strikes. This species is native to Asia and as evidenced by this fledgling, is breeding in Orange County, CA. Often kept as a pet (I had a couple myself in high school), escapees or releases have established large populations in places like California and Hawaii, and Australia. California's Bird Records Committee recently added the Scaly-breasted Munia, which makes it a "countable" species for birders. As an invasive/introduced species, their presence is disadvantageous for fellow granivorous birds through direct competition for food sources, nesting sites, and perhaps transmission of avian diseases. #invasivespecies #windowstrike #avianconservation #birdsmatter

Warbler Wednesday! Here's a vibrant male Tennessee warbler I caught 3 years ago (on this day!) as part of my master's research, where I investigated the relationship of human disturbances to birds' ability to acquire fat during migration.

Hummingbird research continues at Capulin Volcano National Monument. In this image pollen is being collected from a hummingbirds bill.
The Western Hummingbird Partnership is hoping to improve the understanding between hummingbirds and the plants they feed from. Photo taken by EFTA intern at CAVO, Kelsey Whitaker. To learn more about Kelsey's experiences visit http://www.latinoheritageintern.com/2017/06/how-to-band-a-hummingbird/
