"Painting a Song." Birds are the Broadway stars of the animal kingdom. They flaunt beautiful costumes, perform showy dance routines, and serenade each other in a complexity scientists are only beginning to understand. They sing to announce themselves, warn off threats and rivals, and woo paramours. Their language fills the air with music. Birds don’t just communicate; they perform. ___ The Neotropics, with all their diversity, provided a grand stage on which to explore the behaviors of avian song and dance. The first challenge I faced in doing so was a conceptual one: How do you make the audible, visual? How do you paint birdsong? ___ More at @inkdwell Link in Bio☝☝☝ #wallofbirds
