Birds have long been been painted in a positive light; with their majestic songs and effortless flight. Many don't realize how destructive they really are, and more importantly, our inability to mitigate their destructive behavior. Prof. Swaddle will walk you through advances that can mitigate the harmful behavior of birds.

Professor Swaddle is a Professor of Biology at the College of William and Mary. His research emphasis is in behavioral ecology and evolution, focusing on how anthropogenic alteration of the environment influences the ecology and evolution of bird populations.
