Western sandpipers travel up to 6 thousand miles one way from as far south as Peru to their nesting areas in western and northern Alaska. Along the way, they rely on a healthy chain of wetlands that provide food and rest. Watch this western feed on biofilm on the mudflats of the copper river delta.

Some Male Birds Fly Under False Colors to Attract Mates, Study Suggests

Fascinating research showing how 'mediocre' male tanagers can enhance their colors, cheating the system to appear like standout mates--due to previously unknown feather micro structure. (We're trying not to laugh about the parallel with human teenagers !)
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/21/science/birds-tanagers-mating-color.html

Elaborate feather microstructures allow male tanagers to enhance their colors, making them seem as if they are higher quality mates.

Light pollution: it affects bats in addition to migratory birds. We're impressed by the work of our partner, Bat Conservation International, BatCon in advancing the science AND supporting female scientists!

#SundayStudentScholar Léa Mariton, PhD candidate from Sorbonne Université - Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, is studying the impacts of artificial light pollution at night on fast-flying bat species phenology at roosts in France. #WomenInSTEM

Check out BirdCast to see where you should turn off your lights to save birds. Migration has started!

Migration alert! Millions of birds will be flying through night skies this weekend. It should make for fantastic birdwatching in the brightly colored parts of the maps in this image. It's also a critically important time to turn out lights at night, to help migrating birds stay on course and away from deadly window collisions.

When life around the world returns to normal, our world cannot return to business-as-usual. Mass amounts of damage has already been done, but that does not mean we have to continue that legacy. We have the ability to make a difference, but that can only happen when we work together to #RestoreOurEarth on this 51st Earth Day (www.earthday.org). A more sustainable world requires efforts in every aspect of our society and that starts with YOU. Join us in the fight!
