We hope you will join UCRAB for a presentation by Sean Peterson and Lynn Schofield on Berkeley’s own pair of Peregrine Falcons. Sean and Lynn manage the social media project of Cal Falcons, which provides information and updates on Annie and Grinnell, the Peregrine Falcon pair who have been nesting on top of the Campanile since 2016.

Sean Peterson is a PhD candidate in UC Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management. He currently studies wetland birds in the Sierra Nevada foothills, focusing primarily on Black Rails. At the University of Minnesota, he received his Masters Degree studying Golden-winged Warblers. Sean has been studying birds since 2006 when he spent a summer bird banding in Costa Rica.

Lynn Schofield is a biologist with The Institute for Bird Populations who currently studies wildlife responses to fire and works on wetland conservation issues in the Sierra Nevada Region. She has also been involved with the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory since 2008 as an intern and then later as a volunteer. Her research interests also include migratory behavior in neotropical birds and using novel tracking technologies to help understand bird behavior.
