"Tell me, what do you think
about the link
to life afar, the next place
where spirits race
to find a home,
no longer bone?"
from "Travels"A poem and picture by one of our chatters
A: An ornithologist is a scientist who studies birds (ornithology) in an academic setting and has made birds his or her specialty. Ornithologists participate in scientific studies of all aspects of the natural history of birds, both living and extinct.
Ornithologists continually add to our knowledge of birds and help guide bird conservation efforts.
Many ornithologists have thought an barn owlet was female by spots, etc., only to find it male after blood DNA testing
