Tobacco Policy

I need a 10 page paper with bibliography on birds eating seeds from a bird feeder with High protein and another feeder with 3% less protein. This paper has to make sense as if the birds were being observed for 1 month. Half way through,  the feeders needed to be swapped.

Experimental Set-Up


BIO 4060, Section 11 students will continue to study Optimal foraging Theory.  They will set up two birdfeeders, both will be about 4 or 5 feet from a wood line.  The feeders will be separated by at least 40 feet and, if possible, more than that.  Students will shop at Feed and Seed stores for sunflower seeds.  They need to buy two types of sunflower seeds one with the highest amount of Crude Protein and the other with the lowest amount of Crude Protein possible.  The Crude Protein difference must be at least 3% or more and if you cannot find this difference please contact Dr. Rauch before continuing.  Students will put the Higher Crude Protein seeds in one feeder (now called the High Protein Feeder) and the lower Crude Protein seeds in the other feeder (now called the Low Crude Protein Feeder).  Students will collect data on which species of birds visit each feeder and how long (in seconds) the visit lasts.  A template of the graph expected in the Final Report is posted on Canvas.



Biological Research – BIO 4060
Summer Term 2021
Selected Topics in Avian Ecology
1 to 4 semester hours
Desiderium Sciendi – “Longing to Know”
Professor: Dr. Thomas J. Rauch
Phone 318-6119
Nature of Course Content: This course will allow the student
conduct or continue a research project on the feeding ecology of
seed-eating birds here in Mississippi. Students will set up
bird feeders with different types of sunflower seeds and collect
data on the feeding preferences of birds. A research paper will
analyze data collected and compare results with other published
literature on the subject.
Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this course, the student
will be able to:
1. Identify seed-eating birds found in Mississippi;
2. Collect and analyze behavioral data;
3. Analyze the effect of predators and food quality
on bird feeding behavior.
4. Write a paper comparing their results to other
published results.
Course Requirements:
1. Field data collection (about 40 to 50 hours).
2. Research paper (8-20 pages) and bibliography.
3. Weekly conference with instructor: approximately
30 minutes a week.
4. You must email me at: stating
you have talked to me about the project before June
16, 2021 or you will be dropped from the course.
Evaluation: A grade will be assigned based on a subjective
evaluation of the quality of data collected and the academic
merit of the research paper. Grading criteria for the research
paper will include correct grammar and spelling, proper citation
of sources, data presentation, and extent of effort and original
thought. All reports are due by August 1, 20210. Reports turned
in after this date will not count towards your final grade. I
highly recommend that reports be turned in on or before July 26,
2021 so that they can be evaluated and revised before final
