My new popular science book, A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching: Getting to Know the World's Most Misunderstood Bird, is officially out! It's full of fun facts, jokes, and wild tales. Booklist called it "the most perfect of popular science titles"(!) workman.com/products/a-pocke…

The Supreme Court just overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. This is devastating, an absolute national tragedy. But know that this isn't the end of this fight, that activists and organizers are diligently working to continue access to safe abortion. A thread:

Just 17% of Americans in the May CNN poll said they'd be happy to see Roe vs. Wade overturned, with 12% saying they'd be satisfied, 21% that they'd be dissatisfied, 36% that they'd be angry, and 14% that they wouldn't care.

It's Edwards' hairstreak time. Very tiny butterflies with false heads and antennae on their hindwings (the butt end). I feel unworthy of their presence! They're prefect. What more could you want.

Closeup of that false head. Butterfly wings are made of tiny scales. They're basically pixel art.

I made a comic about this false head that very few people found funny, but I chuckled wildly to myself and sometimes that's all I want.

I'm so grateful for @mtyrhetoric's kind review of A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching for the @ABA's latest issue of Birding. It was thoughtful and beautifully alliterative ("peristeronic paean"!). An excerpt:
