Episode 6: Seabird Aviculture with CJ McCarty

Oregon Coast Birdcast

04-03-2024 • 57 minutos

Paul talks to CJ McCarty, Curator of Birds at Oregon Coast Aquarium about working with seabirds at the aquarium! The Seabird Aviary at Oregon Coast Aquarium is home to six species of birds including Black Oystercatchers, Common Murres, Pigeon Guillemots, Tufted Puffins, Horned Puffins, and Rhinoceros Auklets. CJ shares how she went from being a young animal lover to having one of the world’s coolest job titles and what makes her work so rewarding. They discuss the amazing science the aviary has been part of, drama between aviary birds, how changing oceans are affecting wild seabirds, and why puffins are actually cooler than penguins!

In the introduction, Paul provides an overview of what birds you can expect to see this month on the Oregon Coast. At the end of the episode, ASLC Digital Media Coordinator Nissa Parker jumps in to share news about ASLC events and projects.
