Hello everyone,

I just published a piece about a Current Biology paper that investigates
two farming strategies and their impacts upon tropical birds. Basically,
the study found that some farming practices have the potential to
simultaneously protect natural habitats and boost farm yields -- good news
for birds, tropical birds and for endangered species worldwide:

Could some farming practices benefit tropical birds?

This piece is accompanied by a photo gallery of some of the agricultural
winners and losers that you may enjoy looking at:

as always, feel free to share widely, with friends, family and fellow
bird-nerds.
