Birds are charismatic and conspicuous animals. They also serve as excellent models for understanding many biological concepts, including: evolution, physiology, behavior, and ecology. In this program we will study avian biology at the organism level (inside: physiological systems and adaptations of birds) as well as birds as components of ecosystems (outside: population and community ecology and avian social systems). Through lab and field work, students will gain a holistic understanding of avian biology and in the process will learn about birds commonly found in the Puget Sound area in springtime.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in: biology, wildlife biology, and ecology.

Online learning:
  • Enhanced Online Learning - This offering requires access to web-based tools, but use of these tools does not displace any face-to-face instruction.

Students must have successfully completed 8 credits of college-level biology.
