Animal Behavior Society 2020 virtual meeting

The Animal Behavior Society conference was this week, and we were thrilled to take part in this virtual meeting with talks by Ilias, Erin, Paisley, Roz and Sam!

Here’s Ilias on the question of what makes a hummingbird unpredictable:

Erin presented her research on bird collisions and why some bird species are especially prone to mortality:

Paisley and I talked about recent work on social networks in wire-tailed manakins with coauthor Brandt Ryder:

Thanks to the organizers who put together an online meeting on short notice. We really enjoyed it and I think the quality of the talks was better than any meeting I’ve been to before. We missed the real socializing but found the virtual format to even the playing field in some ways with more opportunity for questions & discussion.
