It’s crunch time. I’ll be busy the next few days finishing a paper on interspecific territoriality and convergent evolution. (No need to ask, I plan on posting about this interesting idea). So, I’ll be taking a little break from blogging.
Yours truly is included for my post on mockingbirds trying to kill blind people.
Here are my favorites from the carnival, in case you don’t want to wade through them all.
Living the Scientific Life posts this article on the new species of parrot and mouse discovered from the Phillipines. The parrot is one sharp looking bird.
Bill Thompson posts about his first encounter with Pale-billed Woodpecker. What’s so cool about his post is that he actually took pictures of both Pale-billed and Lineated Woodpeckers. I left him a comment on identifying the two.
A lady out in Tucson put up pictures of a Curve-billed Thrasher building a nest. It’s all about the location.
And finally, if you think posts about backyard birding are boring, you should try reading backyard birding posts from other countries. They assuredly are not boring, unless of course you’re from that country.
I’ll reemerge from my hole in a few days.
