Ornithology class makes the news

ODU's Field Ornithology class led by Dr Eric Walters was at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge on Nov 20,2012, when his students identified a Northern Lapwing. Two ODU Biology graduate students in the class, Natasha Hagemeyer and Robyn Nadolny, were the ones to first identify the rarity.

This European / Asian species has never been seen in Virginia before. It is making national headlines among the birding community.
