I have a folder of science papers to write about, but I have to read them first; this is in the near future. There’s a marvelous new paper on the famous “peppered moth” story of evolution via natural selection, but unfortunately the margins of this post are too small to contain my analysis. Stay tuned.
We’ll have a short “readers’ wildlife” today as I have fun to have, but, as usual Stephen Barnard has sent photos (and a video!) that serve nicely.
Baby Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus). Pretty cute:
Western Wood Pewee (Contopus sordidulus):
Western Tanager (Piranga ludoviciana):
Stephen’s video is simply called “Greedy chick.” Those eaglets are getting huge!
