Where highlands meet lowlands

10,000 Birds

I started out the day by walking along a path that climbs the steep mountainside behind El Temascal, and the highland-meets-lowland naturer of this site came to the forefront. The post Where highlands meet lowlands appeared first on 10,000 Birds. I haven’t done much birding during the past few decades in my native United States. But I suspect that it is very difficult there to find a prime site that someone else hasn’t already discovered.

Pot meet kettle

Environmental Economics

Professors often belittle their students for procrastination. From the inbox: Many of you may be aware that we have seen performance issues today in AsULearn. In an effort to isolate the issue, we will temporarily restrict the process of import/restore to the non-peak hours between 5PM and 9AM each weekday. The AsULearn service will still be available 24/7; only the teacher's ability to import/restore course materials is being time-limited.

And, But, Therefore (SEA meeting mini-debrief)

Environmental Economics

Once again, IMHO , the AERE sessions at the SEA meetings were a big success. The highlight for me (other than meeting all of the new economists) was the panel "Top Ten Tips for Young Economists: Teaching, Research and Service."   The call for abstracts for the AERE sessions at the SEA meetings in NOLA (!) AERE sponsored 15 sessions, an all time high. I attended X of these and each one had an audience between 15 and 25 (with one exception).

What I’d like to do is design and invent interesting products, so I spend lots of time in hackspaces working on prototypes. When did you start repairing electronics and electricals?

Waxwings and their kin: Meet the bombycillids

Meet the bombycillids: Palmchat. Waxwings and their relatives are a small, interesting group of songbirds that have seen some interesting taxonomic changes in the last few years. This group — dubbed the bombycillids , from the waxwing genus and family name — appears to fall near kinglets and a large group containing thrushes and muscicapids (Old World flycatchers and chats) in the passerine tree.

Bird Migration and Conservation Meet at Selva Bananito, Costa Rica

10,000 Birds

In Costa Rica, October is our May. Birds begin to filter down through this southern part of Central America by August but the biggest avian movement happens during the third and final weeks of October. While birders up north are pishing up sparrows, digging the Autumn weekend at Cape May, or twitching vagrants, we are busy with kingbird flocks during our height of migration.

Meeting Marshallia

Conservancy Talk

Anyone who feels an attachment to a place takes pride in the rare, endangered or threatened wild things that survive within it. Several rare or declining species inhabit that Laurel Highlands region and the Youghiogheny Gorge where I like to fish, hike , cross-country ski, canoe, hunt deer, and watch birds. Sandstone cliffs and outcrops are habitat for Allegheny woodrats and green salamanders. Timber rattlesnakes bask on those rocks, too.

Nevertheless, I was pleased to find myself at ornithological ground zero this past week, as the American Ornithologists’ Union and the Cooper Ornithological Society held a joint annual meeting in Chicago. Especially happily that the meeting was held at the Palmer House Hilton, right near my office, so that I was able to spend my morning volunteering and still put in a full day at work.). So set your calendars for next year’s meeting, scheduled for September in Colorado.

Notes from the SEA meetings

Environmental Economics

I spent the weekend in Washington, DC at the SEA meetings. Here are some quick observations in the accomodations category: The hotel was very nice and I enjoyed a "Presidential Suite" the first two nights (I had to move to a room for regular riff-raff on Sunday night). It was about 1200 square feet with two bedrooms, a massive living room/foyer and a dining room. I spent about 16 hours total there (12 hours sleeping). The two hotel bars did not have a single IPA on the beer menu.
