Peninsula Audubon group to go ‘In Search of Meadowlarks’

The Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society hosts — virtually — Dr. John Marzluff, professor of wildlife science at the University of Washington, during a Zoom presentation at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Marzluff will present “In Search of Meadowlarks”; visit the events calendar page of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society’s webpage at to register.

Marzluff has birded and talked with farmers from Nebraska to California to Costa Rica to find out why some birds “flee the plow” while others evolve to live among the crops we need for our existence. Participants will hear about vineyards that welcome barn owls to help control rodents, farmers that fallow land each year to benefit songbirds, rotational grazing, and how one rancher traded cows for tourists.

He also teaches courses in ornithology governance and conservation of rare species, field research in Yellowstone, and natural and cultural history of Costa Rica.
