Meredith Swett Walker


I am a biologist by training who used to study hormones and behavior in birds- specifically the fascinating, polymorphic white-throated sparrow in the Boreal Forest of northern Vermont. Now I study the development and behavior of two juvenile humans nicknamed Frog and Pie in the high desert of western Colorado. When I am not handling my research subjects, I write about science and nature. My writing has been featured in Entomology Today, Hakai, Orion, and the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel. You can read my work on my blogs and or follow me on Twitter @mswettwalker
