Terence Farrell, Prof Biology, Stetson University, presents

"Herpetology for the Ornithologist"

He asks:

Why do burrowing owls occur in Florida?

Why do warblers in Florida create a variety of unusual nest types?

How do rattlesnakes benefit birds?

Why do flycatchers use the shed skins of snakes as a nesting material?

Why do some woodpeckers prefer to make nests in dead pine trees?

The answers to these questions and insight into many other features of avian life are related to reptile-bird interactions.
