Grade school students have a new Pacific Science Center summer camp at the University of Washington Bothell. Crows: Caws and Effect is the latest camp developed with faculty and taught by UW Bothell students.
Crow Watch 2018 drew hundreds of people to campus to admire art, browse research posters and hear presentations but mostly to see thousands of crows descend on their way to roost in the wetlands.
Researchers are listening in on the thousands of crows that gather in the evening at the University of Washington Bothell. The computerized eavesdropping studies the relationship between calls and the birds' behavior.
University of Washington Bothell lecturer Keya Sen has received a Fulbright Global Scholar Award to conduct public health research in India, China and Bangladesh. Her project is based on research she began in 2014 at UW Bothell on the pathogen campylobacter carried by crows that roost in the campus wetlands. The bacteria can cause illness. A microbiologist, Sen explores the crow's role at the genetic level.
