Welcome to Subirdia

Dr. John Marzluff
UW Professor

In his latest book Dr. Marzluff reveals that our suburbs and city parks are often rich in bird diversity and these areas may play a key role in preventing loss of species from climate change and other impacts. Considering the well-being of birds as we develop and live in our communities can make a positive difference in the lives of our children and grandchildren.  Dr. Marzluff is the James W. Ridgeway Professor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington, author and editor of numerous books and scientific papers, and a Fellow of the American Ornithologists’ Union.
