April 19 • Program: Golden-winged Warblers in Virginia
Presented by: Dr. Lesley Bulluck
Lesley P. Bulluck is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology and Center for Environmental Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. She earned her BS in Biology from Appalachian State University, her MS in Zoology/Ecology from Miami University of Ohio, and her PhD in Natural Resources Management from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Her research focuses on the population ecology of birds with a focus on migratory warblers (Prothonotary and Golden-winged), and more recently has expanded to include Red-headed Woodpeckers. She has asked questions with these species related to individual and annual variation in reproductive success, within and between season movements, and factors influencing habitat use and distribution. She has published 19 scientific papers and presents her research at national and regional Ornithological conferences each year. Lesley and her husband moved to Richmond in 2007 soon after she earned her PhD. They have two sons, Alder and Heath, and a border collie named Zeus and they enjoy hiking and camping together.
Dr. Bulluck will be talking about her past and ongoing research on Golden-winged Warblers in Virginia. The talk is in honor of Margaret O’Bryan, past president and long time member of Richmond Audubon Society.
