Ok, it's not that huge of a deal or anything, but I am excited about it.
I took Ornithology last spring, and we had to do a project for the class. We drew neotropical tanager species names out of a box, and we had to write extensive reports on the bird we selected. Our finished reports were to be published at Cornell University's Neotropical Bird website/database. Sounds easy, right? Not so fast! The catch was that there is very little known about the species which we were assigned. People have seen them and they have obviously been described as a species, but little is known about the ecology and natural history of these birds. Most of them live in dense, unpopulated rainforests, so it's no wonder. We had to dig through field manuals for Central and South America and try to get basic information, and then do journal and article searches (many of my references were from the 60s and 70s). Most of the references you actually find have maybe a paragraph about your species, but most often it's just a few sentences.
Anyway, I worked really hard on this and got a nearly perfect grade, so I hope it's enjoyable to anyone that wants to read it!
TL;DR: I worked super hard on this article that's posted on the Cornell Neotropical Bird website!
P.S. At least look at the picture and listen to the songs and calls.
