The French & Pickering Creek Conservation Trust is presenting Dr. Robert Curry’s lecture “A Long-Term Investigation of Templin Woods Chickadees: Stand-Alone Studies and Components of Hybridization Research”.

Members of the Curry Lab at Villanova University have studied chickadee ecology and behavior since 1997. Their work focuses on studying the hybridization between Carolina and Black-capped chickadees throughout the region, including at French & Pickering’s Templin Woods Preserve. This talk will present an overview of the Curry Lab’s research on chickadees in the Templin Woods and its relevance for understanding hybridization, extreme weather, and other aspects of songbird biology.

Dr. Robert Curry began studying birds in high school before continuing ornithology as a college student in New Hampshire and Nova Scotia. He completed doctoral research at the University of Michigan investigating social ecology and conservation biology of Darwin’s mockingbirds in Galápagos, and carried out field studies on Florida scrub-jays before joining Villanova’s Biology Department in 1991.
