Study Urban Birds
Are you a budding ornithologist or just a regular city-dweller who wants to take a closer look at the living things around you? Well, this project might be for you.
Cornell University has a long-standing, well-respected tradition of bird studies and now you don't even have to leave your neighborhood to help them out. Their ornithology lab has started an Urban Bird Studies project. Watch pigeons, crows and gulls, collect data and join their band of citizen-scientists. Doesn't that sound fun? Check it out.
Pigeon mating rituals are hilarious.
If you don't do it for the science, do it for the comedy.
