John Kelly on conservation science.

John Kelly says that when he arrived in Marshall, in 1988, virtually no one was studying birds on Tomales Bay. Mr. Kelly, who has a master’s in wildlife from Humboldt State and a doctorate in ecology from the University of California, Davis, had just landed a job at Audubon Canyon Ranch’s newly acquired property: an old hunting lodge where herons, egrets and numerous other birds still live, eat and gather on shores just outside the offices

Herons and egrets released back into the wild after lifesaving care.

So far this year, 23 herons and egrets from the sensitive downtown Oakland rookery have been brought to Bird Rescue’s San Francisco Bay-Delta wildlife center.

Staff at the center has cared for hundreds more herons and egrets from around the bay. Last year, more than 250 black-crowned night herons and more than 270 snowy egrets were treated at the center, most eventually becoming healthy enough after care to be released back into the wild.

Milpitas ‘Eagle cam’ gives viewers a glimpse of the wild side.

The pair of bald eagles who have fascinated bird watchers ever since they set up a nest in a Milpitas redwood tree last year have gone prime time.

The city of Milpitas has installed an “eagle cam” atop a utility pole to provide live video streaming of the nesting birds’ activities in the tree at Curtner Elementary School.

Words on Birds: A perspective on rare birds.

I am often asked what is the most rare bird that I have ever seen. That’s a difficult question. First, I would have to qualify the term “rare.” Is it rare in the world? Rare in North America? Or is it a more local question?

Outdoor Report: Breeding waterfowl up 39 percent in California.

Melanie Weaver, the DFW scientist in charge of the state's waterfowl program, said that waterfowl numbers topped a half-million for the first time in six years, and the total of nearly 550 million waterfowl this year is the highest since the 558 million tallied in 2011. It is also 39 percent higher than the 397 million tally for 2017.
