About the author
Julio C. Gallardo just recently moved to Oregon and he is affiliated with the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University. He obtained his MSc in Behavioral Ecology, for which he studied the hunting behavior of the Snail Kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis) feeding in southern Mexico, at the University of Veracruz, Mexico. He received his PhD in Wildlife at Mississippi State University, studying the ecology of two island raptors in Puerto Rico: the Caribbean Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo j. jamaicensis) and the endangered Puerto Rican Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus venator). He is currently working on developing population estimates and population dynamics models of tropical birds, including some island endemics.
