Tristan da Cunha A remote group of islands of volcanic origin fascinate with amazing nature and wildlife. Iceland is the breeding home of perhaps 60 percent of the world's Atlantic puffins. While exciting, the technique is still in its infancy, and the Raven Pro software that Tegeler uses to extract flight calls from the hours of night recordings--cross-species cryptanalysis as app--also flags, unfortunately, each and every raindrop impact as a bird.

Not all birds are suitable research subjects, Webb explained: Yellow Warblers "get confused" and fly around in all directions; our vocal friend the American Redstart often sees the safety net, rending the whole test moot; and House Sparrows and other cavity-nesting birds simply make themselves at home in one of the tunnel's dark corners.

At the moment, our flight tunnel handicaps the UV patterns. Each is replete with details.
