Pelagic Birding

Dr. Clay Corbin's Field Zoology class is spending the week at the Chincoteague Field Station in Wallops Island, VA. At left, Ben Paul and Mike Russell check out the pelagic birds, while Dave Carney looks on. Looks like fun!

Field Zoology (Biology 252) studies animals (mainly vertebrates) with emphasis on field observation, animal identification, field research techniques, and data collection and analysis. The class visits field sites to gain experience with field methods and data collection. .
