Cole Morokhovich studies color vision of hummingbirds in the Colorado Rockies

Monday, Sep 10, 2018

I spent my summer as a research assistant for Professor Stoddard in the Stoddard lab researching hummingbird color vision at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in the Colorado Rockies. Part of my responsibilities included taking spectrophotometer measurements of flowers frequently visited by hummingbirds, as well as film the hummingbirds pollinate flowers. When I wasn’t doing either of those things, I was either helping capture and band the hummingbirds, helping run the experiments or exploring the surrounding area and peaking mountains.
