iPhone : Maybe the best #cameratrap sequence out there? This weasel was scavenging for days and was not ready to share...not sure it thought this all the way through #cameratrapping #Yukon #mustelid #magpie

iPhone : During the World Cup Nigeria’s population will rise by more than the entire population of Iceland (350,000) – it takes 26 days to do so. Nigeria face Iceland today.

Twitter Web Client : So we now know the final 16 Asian birds which will go into the fourth round of #TWC_BIRDS_Asia - but only eight can go through to the #TWC_BIRDS finals. The first poll will start tomorrow so please come back and vote!

Twitter Web Client : That's all folks. Given the way things are heading why would anyone want to stay here longer than absolutely necessary? 😂 twitter.com/_BTO/status/10…

Twitter Web Client : Using avian sister species to understand global patterns of biodiversity - heres an easygoing summary of 2 papers published in NatureEcoEvo yesterday (perfect excuse to tweet pic of Azure Tit) imperial.ac.uk/news/186799/si… #ornithology #macroecology

iPhone : xeno-canto Sorry for the paywall. An earlier - but basically similar - version has been available on biorxiv since Oct 2016 biorxiv.org/content/early/…

Twitter Web Client : Only a few pages into Carl Zimmers new book, but already learned something (something an avian systematist should already know...):

pedigree derives from the french pied de grue, as branching family tree diagrams were thought to resemble a cranes foot.

Twitter Web Client : Excellent blog post by Jay McEntee explaining our NatureEcoEvo paper out today (nature.com/articles/s4155…) in terms of the ~178 MILLION eBird observations that went into Jay's models -- community science is incredibly valuable! natureecoevocommunity.nature.com/channels/521-b…

Twitter Web Client : The macroecological dynamics of species coexistence in birds
rdcu.be/ZX0h

Analysing range overlap among 1,115 pairs of bird species, the authors show that coexistence is best explained by a model integrating both dispersal-assembly and niche-assembly processes.
