Seabird Series: Foraging 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.
Though bound to the land for reproduction, most seabirds spend 90% of their life at sea where they forage over hundreds to thousands of miles in a few days, or dive to extreme depths from the ocean surface. In this final class of our seabird series, we will discover ways seabirds navigate dynamic ocean conditions to find forage.
