Crows, ravens, jays, magpies and nutcrackers comprise the Corvid family, one of the most unique and intelligent groups of birds here in Cascadia. In our ever-popular annual Corvid class, visit Skagit forests, Methow meadows and the passes in between in search of the birds in their various habitats. Together we'll observe corvids’ habits and personalities firsthand and realize our part in the “cultural co-evolution” corvids and humans have long shared.
John Marzluff, professor of wildlife biology and foster parent to Mariana crows, will be your guide along with Kaeli Swift, University of Washington doctoral candidate researching impacts of urbanization on bird populations alongside Marzluff. Together, the two will bring to life concepts from Marzluff’s award-winning books, In the Company of Crows and Ravens, Gifts of the Crow and the Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing Our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Other Wildlife.
