Some seabirds travel across oceans and have enormous wingspans, others are so small, swift, and particular in their nesting habits that they remain relatively elusive to humans. The marbled murrelet is one of those seabirds, foraging in the coastal ocean and nesting in old-growth forests. This short video combines essay “On the Wing Marbled Murrelets” by Rachael Vega with stunning imagery of OSU researchers tracking the nests and foraging habits of elusive Marbled Murrelets.
Oregon State senior English major Rachael Vega worked closely with Oregon State Productions to write this beautiful essay and record the voice-over. We thank Associate Professor in the School of Writing and novelist Elena Passarello for her guidance and OSU researchers Kim Nelson, Jim Rivers, and Lindsay Adrean for their participation.
