Subject: [cobirds] Program 4/25: Costa Rica w/Dr. Christy Carello and Students


*MSU Professor, Dr. Christy Carello and Students*

*Monitoring Avian Habitat Use, Monte Verde, Costa Rica*

*Tuesday, April 25, 2015, Program 7:15 p.m.*

*Unitarian-Universalist Church, 5001 Pennsylvania Ave. Bldr*


Costa Rica is the only country in Latin America that is adding forest, with
a strong history of protecting natural resources for both its intrinsic
value and because tourism is a large part of the economy. Seven
organizations in Costa Rica developed the Bellbird Biological Corridor in
order to link the upper cloud forest to the coastal region through
protection of existing habitat and reclamation agricultural land. The
group has traveled to the region to document the use of migratory and
resident birds in reclaimed cattle pasture and coffee plantations. There,
they conducted point counts and mist-netting in these reclaimed areas as
well as a reference forest. They will present their study objectives and
preliminary results. In addition, they will show many images of the
fabulous species they encountered and discuss some of the challenges
working in the neotropics.

Dr. Carello will present this program with three of her biology students,
Vinson Turco, Stacy Fuller and Kevin Dykstra.

*Christy Carello, Ph.D.*

Dr. Carello earned her bachelor’s degree at the University of California,
Santa Cruz and her Masters and Ph.D. at the University of Colorado Boulder.
She is currently a professor in the Department of Biology at the
Metropolitan State University of Denver where she teaches courses in
General Biology, Conservation Biology, Ecology and Ornithology. She serves
on the Colorado Field Ornithologist Board of Directors.
