The lab this month welcomed its newest member, Kristie Stein. Kristie worked for us this past Summer on our Black-crowned Night-heron project on Lake Erie. After a journey banding birds in Peru, we were lucky enough to recruit her to join the lab and take charge of the project, which will examine important factors limiting the population of this charismatic and regionally threatened bird in Western Lake Erie. Kristie is a Louisiana native, skilled field biologist, and avid hunter. We are so happy to have her join the family! Welcome Kristie!
