The Avian Ecology Program conducts basic and applied research on Florida's birds with an emphasis on the biology of the Florida Scrub-Jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens). We study birds across natural and human-altered landscapes in central Florida. Through our work, we train young scientists, support land managers and conservation decision makers, and inspire people to conserve birds.
