Dissertation on My Mind Photo Essay: The Field Site

I gave you a little look at my field site with yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday entry. Here are daytime photos of my adventures in live-trapping prairie voles. I study prairie voles from central Illinois – Urbana and Champaign, Illinois.

Roadside field site along a county road in Urbana.
Live trap hiding in the tall prairie grass.

The vole's view of the world.

Another field site - a field of Alfalfa.

Big hair on the prairie - Me at my most successful trapping site - the Agriculture field, growing Alfalfa, on the University of Illinois campus.

So you're studying voles? Just voles? I'm up here in Wisconsin and I have two shrews living in my yard. :)
