Too much time has passed since posting. We had a relaxing trip to the states earlier this month. The highlight was seeing U2 in concert in Boston! Frustratingly, upon our return to Panama, some one decided to break into our house and steal both laptops. It's taking me a while to get back to speed.
Nonetheless, our work with avian disease is growing rapidly, and I'm trying to juggle that with the on-going work in the diversification and speciation in Panamanian lowland birds. It should be a fun year ahead.
