Careers with Birds: Interview with Kim Bostwick

10 Jan 2014

Kim Bostwick’s ground-breaking research on manakins has been featured in National Geographic Magazine and she’s currently the curator of the Bird and Mammal collections at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology‘s Museum of Vertebrates. Kim started as a young animal lover in rural Vermont and has since spent her life studying birds. Visit the Young Birders Network website (www.youngbirdersnetwork.net) to read more about careers in ornithology.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology writes about Ms Bostwick:

How a Bird Sings With Its Wings: Dr. Kim Bostwick’s field research centers on the Club-winged Manakin, a bird that makes a remarkable, high-pitched hum in one of the strangest ways imaginable. She discovered the secret over the course of many years, using experiments and high-speed video, and her website tells the story in fascinating detail and great video.
