<div dir="ltr"><div>hey everyone, <br></div><div><br></div><div>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! </div>
