My hair's getting long, but not long enough to tie into a ponytail, which is my intention in this time when we avoid barbers. You can see how long my hair has become in the selfie I posted today. In it I sit at my desk...
...working on my laptop, my immense desk towering over me and clutter filling the space that is not filled by electronics. I chose black and white for this composition as I do for all my best selfies. It's unique because...
...I show myself from the back, a trick I mastered by resorting to the ten second timer in one of my cameras. I don't know how I feel about this photo -- perhaps you have something to say. I'd be very interested.

Two tweets summarizing @veteranstoday articles that blamed Israel for nuking a ME country. On the left a Jan 2019 tweet on Yemen that got 1.6K retweets & 1.1K likes & practically NO #Ziotrolls. On the right a tweet on Beirut from Aug 2020 with TONS of Ziotrolls. Was it the #bird? ImageImage
For those interested in the actual tweets, here's the Jan 2019 thread on Yemen.
And here's the Aug 2020 thread on Beirut.

I slept for fourteen or fifteen hours today after sleeping six the night before. Sleep is one of the most important things when you live with #bipolardisorder -- too much and you sink into a depression. Too little and...
...you are the obnoxious life of the party. So my body fought off the mania by blasting me with an excessive night stupor. It made it hard to engage for very long with people on my online bipolar support group. Perhaps it was for the best given that I was such dismal company.

Hey #YYJ #Victoria #Tree #Arborist peeps - can anyone id this conifer for me? It's in my neighbouring yard - home to generations of birdies: chickadees, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, wrens.. and it's about to be demolished for new condo; and I'm heartbroken.
The new @CityOfVictoria #TreePreservation Bylaw calls for a fee of $2000/tree to fund the planting of a replacement tree elsewhere. (But has no provisions that I know of for wildlife protection)

The new condo being built by @ARYZE_devcon will be home to 6 'boutique' units; which will do nothing to improve the affordable housing shortage in #YYJ

A thread to cover some of the major - and I mean seriously, shockingly major - gaps, mistakes and problems with the #environmental impact assessment for Montijo airport in #Portugal.

First up: no #fieldwork. AT ALL. 1/
That's right – the EIA of a major international #airport proposed for the country’s most important #wetland site for #bird #conservation didn’t bother to actually count any #birds.

Instead, they depended on studies already published for other reasons.

How did that work out? 2/
Well, the data on birds feeding in the #intertidal- the largest and most important #habitat in the #SPA- was collected in 2002-3.

In the 17 years since, the #Tagus has changed a lot for birds. Improved #water treatment but drastic increase in #shellfish harvesting. 3/

@HarrisSamaras @Harvard @mlipsitch My take: It's a numbers game depending on a number of variables, including:
1. To what extend can #COVID19 be contained outside #China? Here the fast infection-rates in #SouthKorea & #Italy are a concern.
#CoronaVirus
@HarrisSamaras @Harvard @mlipsitch b) Countries like #Indonesia, not taking proper precautions with returnees from #China, are also concerning. #Africa was fairly untouched, but now #COVID19 spreads in #Egypt.
2. How well do countries respond? Some seem to do OK, others seem to have been negligent (see #Italy).
@HarrisSamaras @Harvard @mlipsitch c) Currently #trains from Northern #Italy are still reaching #Germany - This is a great way to spread the risk & make containment difficult.
3. Can countries cope with a bigger number of severley sick people? The South of #Germany only has 60 Iron-Lungs. Not much!

Witnessed history being projected! On Saturday, 8th February, India’s prominent artist #nalinimalani created an installation on the facade of the #TajPalaceHotel in #Mumbai It had more than 50 animations and floating images, perfectly wrapped around the hotel ImageImageImageImage
People stopped on the extremely busy #Gatewayofindia to hunt for the ‘#Koel’ (large Indian #cuckoos) as the sound of the #bird emitted from the #video Nalini Malani has an entire series called’Can you hear me?’ on @instagram on her profile
Sanjeet had already looked it up so when we were talking to the artist, she explained more to us.This hotel was the same place that had faced horrific #terroristattack in 2009.Today it represents a more peaceful #memory in the lives of the Mumbai lovers ImageImageImage

Curious for opinions from #wildlife #biology folks. Am teaching Wildlife Populations for the 2nd time this Spring and want to adjust labs a bit.

Currently, labs focus on understanding pop growth, CMR & other density estimates, etc. Most are Excel heavy.

#WildlifePops
Last year, we had two outdoor labs around estimating #squirrel population densities on campus, which students really enjoyed. This year am adding another outdoor lab around using #frog calling indices. (Yes, we shall be going out in the snow!)

#WildlifePops
I also think our students could use more practice learning local species & scientific names, esp. bc not all get to take all the animal-ologies. So..

Should I incorporate 1 - 2 specimen labs on important #wildlife species? (have good #mammal #bird #herp #fish collections)

It is the N. American songbird breeding season, AKA time for my annual #bird & #birding PSA:

Don’t kill #cowbird brood parasite eggs/nestlings! It is illegal and likely doing more harm to your birds than good. How? Behold, a mega-thread: 1/37

[all media mine unless indicated] One blue Dickcissel and one speckled cowbird egg in a nest
Before I start, know I’m going to be citing lots of academic articles that are likely behind a paywall. If you want to know more about the articles and can’t access them please DM me! Science should be available to everyone, but that is an argument for another time. 2/37
The Brown-headed Cowbird! A sharp-looking blackbird from North and Central America. Males have black bodies and chocolate-brown heads. Females are sleek and brown. They make fun bubbly noises. 3/37 allaboutbirds.org/guide/Brown-he…
