CVWO at FLSP 2009 Spring Intern.
Laura Duval is CVWO's first spring intern at the FLSP station. She is a biology graduate of Virginia Commonwealth and grew up in Norfolk. Her family owns and operates Cobb's Marina in Little Creek. Laura recently worked for the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center in the waterbird section.
During her five weeks at the station, she has become an accomplished extractor and has demonstrated the fine eye so necessary to ageing and sexing many passerines. Understandably, the Pyle Identification Guide to North American Birds has become one of her favorite books!!
Laura has a pleasant, easy way about her, takes her responsibilities at the station seriously and possesses a strong conservation ethic. If she chooses to pursue field ornithology, Laura has a bright future. Come meet Laura at the station!
