About this event

Learn about the birds you can see outside you window in the Chicago area.

At this week's session, meet Louise Bodt, Scientific Affiliate and PhD Candidate. Discussion will include talk about local birds, birding, field work, and lab research. Also learn about the impacts of  introduced bird species and what we can learn from studying "pest" species.

Scientists, researchers, and collections managers are behind the scenes every day, uncovering new information and taking care of our collection.

During Meet a Scientist, you can find them in the Grainger Science Hub. They'll discuss their work and share real items from the museum’s collection of nearly 40 million objects. From collections care to field work, and dinosaurs to ecology, there’s a world of science to explore.

Visit the Science Hub on select weekdays for an up-close look at what our researchers do every day
