Module 13: Birds in the Urban Landscape

We are excited to announce the launch of the development of Module 13, which will be highlighting various bird species in the urban context. Funded by a Grant from the Gottlieb Native Garden (GNG), this Module will enable students to learn about and explore birds that live in or migrate through Southern California, including hummingbirds, osprey (and other Raptors), crows (and other Corvids), as well as bird topics such as natural and anthropogenic threats to the survival of birds, birds as bio indicators of ecosystem health, bird biodiversity, and bird classification, among others. Lesson 1 will be dedicated to Hummingbird Ecology.
We also offer Live Bird Cams on our CURes YouTube channel! These are the first of their kind on the LMU campus, making them groundbreaking for research and education.
