Frederic Beaudry, "Counting Birds at 45, 68, and 71 North (And in Between)".  

Overall North American bird populations have experienced a staggering 30% loss since 1970, with many species experiencing much steeper declines. As part of a national effort to better understand bird population dynamics, Dr. Beaudry (Professor of Environmental Science) has been conducting bird surveys in Washington and Alaska. He will be sharing the thrills and challenges of field work under the Cascades' towering conifers and on the remote Arctic coastal plain.
