    Fantasy Birding

    For those of you who don't know, fantasy birding is a new game that has been gaining some traction in the birding community. The basic premise, much like fantasy football and other games, is that what you 'bird' in the game is a reflection of eBird checklists in real life.

    Elegant Trogon?

    UV to sex birds in the field?

    Has anyone considered using UV light to sex birds in a relatively non-invasive manner in the field? Surely damage to the eyes is minimal? Could this be used to sex birds that have relatively little sexual dimorphism?
