Dr. Reudink studies sexual selection, evolution, and behaviour in birds, with an emphasis on the annual cycle of migratory birds. Dr. Reudink and his students study the migration ecology and evolution of Bullock’s Orioles and Mountain Bluebirds, movement and behaviour in Mountain Chickadees and other winter residents, as well as the conservation biology of Vaux’s Swifts and other aerial insectivores. He teaches Evolution, Conservation Biology, Terrestrial Vertebrate Zoology, Animal Behaviour, and Communicating Biology, with an emphasis on field experiences for undergraduates. He also maintains an active research lab primarily driven by undergraduate researchers. He is especially keen on publishing undergraduate research, including in the Journal of Field Ornithology. In 2015, Dr. Reudink was awarded the TRU Undergraduate Research Mentor Award and also serves as Treasurer of the Society of Canadian Ornithologists and regularly attends joint meetings of the SCO and AFO, as well as the NAOC and AOU.
