Birds and Nature Blog

Bill Hamilton has graciously agreed to provide us with bird and nature blogs. Check back for new blogs!  Bill holds a B.S. in Zoology from Texas Tech, an M.S. in ecology from Ohio State, and a PhD in ecology from the State University of New York-College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He was a biology professor at Penn State (New Kensington) until his retirement this year and has, for the past ten years, written extensively about the ecology of Western Pennsylvania on his blog “The Ecologist’s Notebook”  http://sites.psu.edu/ecologistsnotebook/. Although most of the organisms that Bill has studied in his scientific career live underground, birds are the reason he became a biologist and will always be his first and foremost “biological love.”
