Briefly, I am writing to highly recommend a recent Freakonomics Podcast titled, “What are Gender Barriers Made Of?”.
This post is brief, as I need to get off the computer for at least a few hours.
Dr. Chris Lepczyk (Auburn University), Dr. Frank LaSorte (eBird, Cornell Lab of Ornithology), and myself are excited to be organizing the Big Data Ornithology symposium at the North American Ornithological Congress VI in August 2016!
I recently received the Nelson Memorial Fellowship from the Instituate of Agricultural and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for travel to Washington, D.C. for the North American Ornithological Congress VI! I am grateful for the support the donors, Drs. Stuart O. and Don.J Nelson, have provided me to discuss my research, and the advancements and future of big data ornithology. I will also be presenting preliminary results from my dissertation research in a presentation titled, “Detecting broad-scale regime shifts using the Breeding Bird Survey Data”.

This morning I was lucky enough to see, up close, one of the few North American whooping cranes! With no other whooper friends around, this crane foraged at the UF Beef Teaching Unit, a small cattle facility nestled within the city of Gainesville, among groups of wintering Sandhill Cranes.

As summer ends and “Fall” begins (although, this is Florida), data analysis becomes a primary target. Although I have already analyzed much of my data, I have yet to write up reports for publication. I am also interested in running my Occupancy Models by Dr. Jim Nichols, who has been kind enough to correspond through email regarding my modeling concerns. So, I won’t be watching sparrows much, for a while.
