NHx 310:  Natural History Considerations for Songbird Rehabilitation
Natural history should inform all aspects of wildlife care.  This class serves as an accompaniment to REHAB 310: Songbird Rehabilitation and will provide a fundamental understanding of the natural history considerations for rehabilitation of songbirds.  NHx 310 will provide foundational information regarding the diversity of natural history among passerines.  Topics discussed include identification, anatomy, diet, reproduction and nesting, migration, seasonality of rehabilitation concerns, and more!  This class covers several of the most common passerine species admitted to rehabilitators in Virginia and provides an outline for establishing a natural history based rehabilitation plan for any species.
