Welcome to Island Birds. This site focusses on the conservation and ecology of island birds through the work of the Wildlife Lab of Dr Rob Davis. Island birds are the most imperilled of all birds due to threats including invasive species and sea level rise. Currently this site focusses on our research on the poorly known and endangered sub-species of the Micronesian Megapode Megapodius senex laperouse in the Republic of Palau. There will be more updates on other projects coming soon.
