I gave a 5-minute lightning talk at the American Ornithological Society's annual meeting in Anchorage, Alaska. I'm always trying to find ways to keep my foot in the bird research world, and luckily I had some cool results to present from a project with my former labmate, Nick Justyn at Auburn University.
As usual, the meeting was full of great talks on excellent science, and exploring the surrounding area resulted in views of amazing animals and landscapes. I have one more bird-related project up my sleeve, but after that, I'm not sure when I'll be back to AOS :(
