We're now in the short period between breeding and migration. Many adult birds are now molting their primaries. Birds born this year will not be molting but check out the crows and vultures and they should be missing feathers on the wing and tail.
I've taken a two month mental break. I have editorial duties to finish as well as my own major revisions to deal with. Not to mention updating our sophomore level labs. Awesome. Bring it on!
