Read an intriguing interview with John here

Throughout the course of John’s extensive career at UC San Diego, he has preserved and collected over 200 birds’ nests from in and around campus, ranging from delicate hummingbirds nests to robust hawk nests. The nests have been so well preserved that some still contain egg shells, unhatched eggs, and bird skeletons. The type of materials used to construct the nests in this rare collection lends a unique, birds' eye perspective of the environmental history and chronology of UC San Diego over the past decade.

The Visual Arts Group will showcase John's collection as an art installation in this year's Summer Art Show.
