 Explore the variant ecosystems of Walnut Hill with John Gerwin, Research Curator of Ornithology at the Museum of Natural Sciences. John currently conducts research on the life cycles of migratory birds, with a focus on breeding biology. He does some work on the non-breeding component of some species as well. He currently studies the Painted Bunting (NC/SC), Black-throated Green Warbler (NC), Swainson’s Warbler (NC/SC), Golden-winged Warbler (Nicaragua).
