        Forensic Ornithology: Bird Detective | Smithsonian Science How

        Analyze the remains of birds from airplane strikes and other events. Meet Dr. Carla Dove, an ornithologist at the National Museum of Natural History. See how she and her team use various types of evidence to identify the birds. Marvel at how modern techniques such as DNA barcoding complement old-fashioned comparisons of feathers. Consider what bird remains tell you about populations of birds over time. Learn how Carla and her team are making your flights safer while improving management of natural populations of birds.
