Our annual Ornithology Lecture in December always brings exciting tales of research and adventure, and this past lecture was no exception! Professor Jan-Ake Nilsson, of the University of Lund, has a passion for birds, which has led him to do some fascinating research to understand the life strategies of small passerines.
Naturally Speaking‘s Steve Larcombe and Karen Hotopp (@KarenHotopp) sat down with Jan-Ake to talk about his many research interests, some of his favorite birds, and the body strain of attempting to mimic a rock.
