These knickerbocker-clad Iowa State students from 1925 are scanning the trees for birds. The Iowa State College Catalogue for 1925-26 lists a course in “Bird Study” in the Zoology and Entomology Department. The class focused on “Identification, habits, and economic importance of Iowa birds. Birds of the vicinity will be observed under guidance.”

More photos of students engaged in wildlife study can be found in our Animal Ecology Flickr album.
