1 #BOU2022

Thank you and welcome – a wonderful honour to give this #BOU2022 #AlfredNewtonLecture talk. A sight for a curious naturalist: why is this warbler apparently so silly? Or, how does the cuckoo get away with this?

#ornithology 2 #BOU2022

The talk celebrates Alfred Newton, founder of the BOU in 1858, the year of Darwin and Wallace’s papers proposing the theory of natural selection. Newton was an immediate early fan.

Welcome to #BOU2022, Avian Reproduction, the BOU’s 2022 annual conference .

Our three-day conference is on Zoom and on Twitter and is a genuinely low carbon even. By making #BOU2022 virtual we've also taken it global and have expanded the event way beyond the UK-dominated attendance of an in-person conference with this Zoom conference having nearly 2x the delegates, 36% of whom are from outside the UK.

Hi everyone! Time for another #ORNITHOLODAY!

My name is Brandon Edwards (@bedwards144), and I'll be tweeting to you LIVE from Guelph, ON Canada today. I plan to focus on the role of computer science (I'll call it #CompSci today) in #ornithology.

First, a bit about me! I'm currently a 4th year BSc student at the University of Guelph (@uofg) in Guelph, ON. I initially started out in the school's Bachelor of Computing: Computer Science program, and actually was in that program for about 3 years before I switched to Mathematics! #ornitholoday
