Hello tweeties,

i finally finished writing a story whose title will no doubt get caught by your spam filter, so i am using the birds' scientific name instead;

http://scienceblogs.com/grrlscientist/2008/10/why_are_female_blue_tits_unfai.php

this story discusses two evolutionary hypotheses regarding cuckholdry in female .. erm, birds of a particular species .. and discusses how a research team used a really insightful method for analyzing their data. it's some really interesting work that i think you'll appreciate.

cheers,
