Meredith Swett Walker is 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 she studies the development and behavior of two juvenile humans nicknamed Frog and Pie in the high desert of western Colorado. While this is a demanding and absorbing field of study, she occasionally has thoughts that do not involve the feeding and care of her current study organisms. This blog is a venue to explore those ideas, exercise writing muscles, and hopefully get a little feedback from the big wide world.
