Bianca Sicich earned her B.S. in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior from the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating in 2017, she spent about three years at various field jobs, including Florida Grasshopper Sparrows in central Florida and Whooping Cranes in Wisconsin. In 2021 she returned to school for my Master's in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. Bianca's research is focused on possible influences on Pinyon Jay foraging site selection in south-central New Mexico. Bianca plans to graduate in late 2023 to pursue a career as a wildlife biologist to work with avian species or a broader scope. She is excited to return to Texas and learn more about the delicate and unique Texas Gulf Coast habitat and its inhabitants (i.e. the Eastern Black Rail).
