Seabird Series: Breeding Ecology of Seabirds

Join Seabird Biologist Gregory Smith on a journey through all things Seabirds. From the Oregon Coast to the Seychelles Islands, we will attempt to cover identification, breeding ecology, evolution, and foraging ecology.

Seabirds would rather spend all their time at sea but in most years they return to land, often in a dramatic fashion, to lay their eggs. Explore the myriad ways seabirds breed, nest, and raise offspring around the world.

$20 – $30
