    About This Project

    Bachman's sparrow is a beautiful songster once common to the American southeast. Males vary in how aggressively they defend their territory. Do mad dads produce more, healthier offspring, or is aggression costly? We will measure territory quality, aggressiveness, and hormones of territorial males and link these factors to the success of offspring. We aim to conserve Bachman's sparrow and better understand reproductive success in songbirds.

    Blast off!
