In a recent post on the All About Birds blog (hosted by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology), Jennie Miller wrote an excellent non-technical summary of our hummingbird migration study. If you’re into bird watching, citizen science, or animal migration, check it out here! The original paper was published in the January issue of Ecography (open access). This project, and other ongoing hummingbird research in the Graham lab, was funded by a grant from NASA’s Biodiversity Program.
