The rehousing, imaging, and databasing marches on this week! Also, we had a tour of the Ornithology Department. Some of the highlights of this tour was seeing an extinct Ivory-billed Woodpecker, an array of colorful Kingfishers (a favorite of our tour guide, Paul Sweet), a variety of nests and eggs, and the preparation lab. We also got to talk with a researcher who was looking at the variation of structural feather colors among Rollers using a device that he could hold over any feather and it would output that feather's exact color.
Here are some of our favorite foram and ostracod pictures from this week!
