Black-naped Terns and projectile vomiting: Published!

In April 2008, bird photographers documented Black-naped Terns mobbing a Grey Heron, using their secret weapon, projectile vomiting. The accounts were posted here: 1 and 2.

The photographers Roger Deng and Lee Tiah Khee, have now joined up with an armchair birder to publish a scientific paper of the observation in Nature in Singapore. Get a PDF copy of the paper HERE and read the fully illustrated account.

Again and again, bird photographers are contributing to the local knowledge of bird behaviour. These are posted in e-forums, websites and blogs. Now, such observations are being published in scientific journals.

Why publish? Well, once published, the information is freely available.

Kudos to these photographers!
