hey everyone,

i just published this piece about a fun little citizen science/birding game
where the viewer is challenged to spot camouflaged nightjar eggs. the
research project that gave rise to this game is studying animal vision and
the evolution of camouflage, and how camouflage affects survival. the best
part is that you don't need to be a birder to enjoy this game, so share it
with your friends, neighbours and co-workers!
