We had a great time at the #beaverhillbirdobservatory learning about saw whet owls and banding! We were also treated with seeing the northern lights when we left! Thanks BBO!

If anyone has pictures you want us to share shoot us an email!

Today. Was. Awesome. #thewildlifesociety
This is a bit of an introspective post, so read on if you care.... Whenever I travel, I'm always drawn to nature, even when I'm in an urban landscape. But it was always an integral part of my childhood, and led to the profession I'm in today. One of the lasting thoughts I have from the Wildlife Society conference I attended in Albuquerque is the issue of diversity in the wildlife sciences (and really ecology in general) - of both gender and culture. As a caucasian male in the field, I'm one of many, and that's made me question what kind of role I should have moving forward in my career - I'm not one of the visible minorities that are under-represented in my field. I don't think I have an answer yet. But I like the word facilitate. Facilitate connections between young people and mentors who look like them. And also acceptance. Be accepting and welcoming of those who show an interest in the natural world, regardless of their background. Because exclusion- whether intentional or not - only serves to impede progress in our conservation and management goals.

An exciting time here at @devcon_ecology! The Wildlife Society recently covered a publication by my colleagues on the relationship between pesticide and parasite tolerance in wood frogs. Populations vary in their tolerance to all sorts of stressors, and depending on the selective pressures their environment places upon them, they may trade off tolerance to one stressor in favor of defending against another. This is one of the central themes of my dissertation. Best of all, they featured one of my photos in the article! Congrats to my labmate @vwuerthner and colleagues @doctorjonesie and @brian_mattes on the publication!

Had a wonderful time tabling with #UFWEC and #thewildlifesociety folks at #CALSTailgator from 9-12 on the morning of my 21st birthday! Enjoyed visiting #Repticon later in the day. @ufwildlife

The gators are captive animals from FWC and are only handled by trained individuals. They are monitored and switched out to keep stress levels low throughout the event. The tape is required by law when they are in public and it is taken off as soon as they are out of public. I will be returning them to FWC on Monday. 
________________________________________________

All of these photos were taken by me besides the one I am in (taken by Brian Barker with my camera) and the tarantula and pill bugs (taken by another wildlifer with my camera,) so please ask if you want to use them.

South Valley Academy students presented in their work at Valle de Oro to The Wildlife Society. It was a beautiful fall day on the refuge and they caught some butterflies too!

Female #026 thank you for letting me ear tag you last night! #thewildlifesociety #uwstevenspoint #
You might say that we had a bit of success with the owl banding last night. Two Northern Saw-Whet owls, one Boreal Owl, and a sighting of a juvenile Great Horned Owl a little later on. .

Had a great day touring the Penticton Creek Restoration Project. Started off the morning helping to sex the fish that had been caught in the trap overnight, then toured the rest of the creek to see what had been done to help the salmon. Thanks to Dr. Paul Askey, the Penticton Creek Restoration Committee and the Okanagan Fly fishing Club for making it happen! #tws #thewildlifesociety #ubco #salmon #restoration #saturdaysareforscience

A western screech owl captured at an owl banding demonstration. This male was in great shape. He survived the drought and now is doing well after a great rain year. #owl #westernscreechowl #wildlife #thewildlifesociety #biologist #conservation #orangecounty #california #owlnightlong

When I first visited the school, the then department head brought me into the Bird Room and showed me the records from our quizbowl team dating back to 1965. Little high school me was like 'heck yes I want to try that someday' and so I joined early on and that pretty much made my time here. I'm honored to have competed for such an exceptional team this year, and to be graduating from a program with such a good record.
