A couple of weeks ago a few of my Resplendent Quetzals images appeared at the Augsburger Allgemeine, in the Mensch & Tier section. Maybe you saw it in person if you live in the south of Germany.
Raptors are among the most challenging birds to identify in the field due to their bewildering variability of plumage, flight silhouettes, and behavior. Raptors of Mexico and Central America is the first illustrated guide to the region’s 69 species of raptors, including vagrants.
It features 32 stunning color plates and 213 color photos and I was lucky to contribute with several of my own.
Nice to see my image of a White-collared Manakins (Manacus candei) on the cover of Oecologia.
In this issue, Wolfe et al. show that dry El Niño events were associated with strikingly low manakin survival in young forests, while El Niño events had little effect on survival in mature forests. These results suggest that mature forests may serve as refugia for fruit-eating birds during periods of climatic instability.

It’s always nice to see my images put to good use. Tom it’s using my “Free to use for education” license for a poster in the annual Fellows Symposium at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama City for The rates of avian community development in forest canopy and understory.
Very interesting poster!
