Just dropping by to let you all know that my review paper on effectiveness of different vegetation management techniques in tern nesting habitat (part of my MS research) just came out in the journal Conservation Evidence! You can find it here: Vegetation management review.
Right now we're deep in the mire of writing, burning fish, analyzing data, etc. We did take a break for a week in October to head over to South Africa for the second World Seabird Conference. It was an excellent conference in a beautiful place, and I got to have lots of awkward, star-struck conversations with "famous" seabird researchers.
I'll write a real research update soon, but in the meantime, here's a huge, cleaned red snapper we found while sorting through pelican chick regurgitates. Don't you just want to eat it? Maybe? Almost?
