Biology Professor Featured in Bird Watcher’s Digest

    The September/October cover article in Bird Watcher's Digest features the Caspian tern and the work of Willamette biology Professor David Craig.

    The author discussed Craig's experience working with the birds around the globe and quoted a Willamette student who participated in Craig's research. Craig has conducted his own research in addition to advising students' work on terns since 1993. One of his research sites is the world's largest tern colony, at the mouth of the Columbia River, where 9,000 pairs nest.
