Foraging Behavior of Birds – Anjan Kaushik

Anjan studied differences in foraging behavior among individuals of several bird species. This research examined whether juvenile birds were being displaced to the less diverse grassland site just southeast of the Biocore Prairie. Anjan used color bands to identify individual birds and to examine their foraging behavior. The banding project was an integral part of the prairie restoration and will continue over several years as the site changes from an old agricultural field to a tallgrass prairie.
