I Am An ... Ornithologist is part of our "I Am A..." series of USGS whiteboard animations that highlight USGS careers. The concept is to show "what society (or my mom) thinks I do" compared with "what I really do." One image captures a more whimsical representation of a "scientist" in the field and the second demonstrates a more accurate representation of what we really look like.
An Ornithologist is someone who studies birds! The USGS has lot of scientists that do this.
Below we feature the animated video and a coloring page.
