Uncovering the Hidden World of a Secretive Seabird
The Marbled Murrelet is a threatened seabird that inhabits Oregon’s coastal areas and can nest >40 miles inland within older forests, making it especially challenging for researchers to understand its breeding ecology.
Join Dr. Jim Rivers, lead scientist for the Oregon Marbled Murrelet Project, to learn why murrelets are so unique, what it takes to locate active murrelet nests, and recent findings from the project.
