Back from the Field

Very successful field outing in New Mexico.  I'll let Justin take care of posting about the field trip, as he was our fearless field leader.  Some other highlights from the last few weeks:

- We are both nearing completion of a major manuscript that should make a big splash in the avian flight origins literature

- It looks like I will be adding a swarm motion component to my research base in the near future.  Exciting stuff!

- Data collection underway for some more azhdarchid pterosaur motion and size estimate work.  This will be the best hindlimb cross-sectional work for an azhdarchid, along with some some quite good forelimb data.

- I've been doing the Twitter gig for some months now, particularly contributing to Science140.  My Twitter handle is @aeroevo
