Hello everyone,

I just published a piece about a study that seems to finally answer the
question of how migratory birds solve the longitude problem. not only was
the longitude problem a pressing international scientific challenge back in
the day, but it is important for long-distance migrating birds. this study
may also provide valuable insights into how peregrinating birds, such as
albatross, can find their way around the world.
