Birds of Stanford
125 birds to look for on the main campus
In his INTRODUCTION
Stanford University President emeritus Donald Kennedy notes:
"Stanford's academic reserve is home to many things, some of them icons for the university's identity: laboratory buildings, splendid outdoor
sculpture, the Quad, Frost, Hoover Tower, and the Oval. It has also left room for Nature. The Arboretum, the edges of Lagunita, and the "ears"
of the Oval--left in native vegetation in Frederick Law Olmsted's original plan--provide pleasant places to walk and explore. ...
