It’s their easy, exquisitely natural performances also featured in Pennell’s ’77 short “Hell of a Note” and ’83 feature Last Night at the Alamo that are the binding force in the Eagle Pennell canon.

According to scientists who have been studying bird migration for decades, night migrants teach themselves the positions of the stars, particularly that of the unmoving North Star and the spatial relationships among the constellations. They also depend on the patterns of polarized light in the sky at sunrise and sunset to identify true north. In addition to sensing earth magnetic field, both day and night migrants may be able to sense the low frequency sound waves made by the ocean surf and trade winds..
Concerns regarding the rapid loss of endemic biodiversity, and introduction and spread of non indigenous species, have focused attention on the need and ability to detect species present in communities at low abundance. However, detection of rare species poses immense technical challenges, especially for morphologically cryptic species, microscopic taxa and those beneath the water surface in aquatic ecosystems. Next generation sequencing technology provides a robust tool to assess biodiversity, especially for detection of rare species.
