Scientists at Work: What Are Local Seabirds Eating?

How do scientists learn what Bay Area birds are eating? Come see for yourself, as biologists from Point Blue Conservation Science invite visitors to watch them while they work. They’ll be studying the diets of local cormorants by dissecting the indigestible pellets coughed up by these birds. Each pellet contains tiny ear bones from fish consumed by the cormorant. Such studies offer a glimpse into the overall health of local ocean ecosystems.
