New on Montana eBird: Dr. Thomas Riecke joins UM

New on Montana eBird from our partners at the University of Montana Bird Ecology Lab (UMBEL)- Introducing a new bird to the flock: UM Professor Dr. Thomas Riecke

Earlier this year, the University of Montana welcomed Dr. Thomas Riecke as the James K. Ringelman Chair of Waterfowl Conservation, to the faculty of the Department of Ecosystem and Conservation Science. Dr. Riecke specializes in quantitative modeling of bird populations; among many other things, he studies how environmental conditions and animal behavior affect reproductive success and rates of population change in waterfowl. He and his students have started a research project on Lesser Scaup in Montana’s Centennial Valley. Dr. Riecke will serve as an invaluable resource for Montana’s wildlife ecology community, and we look forward to learning more about his research!

Learn more about Dr. Riecke’s previous research on White-throated Dippers, Brant, Black-necked Stilts in this new blog post on the Montana eBird site:
