Subject: [Tweeters] How Do Young Birds Know When To Leave The Nest?
Hello everyone,

I just published a piece about a cute little Science Advances paper that
describes the nature of a previously unrecognised conflict between parent
birds and their offspring: when to leave the nest.

Basically, the age when young birds leave their nest is the evolutionary
compromise between parents, who want their chicks to leave as soon as
possible, and offspring, who want to leave as late as possible -- does this
sound familiar?

How Do Young Birds Know When To Leave The Nest?

As always, please share this piece with your colleagues, friends, and
family as well as on social media and twitter.

hope your summer is going well.
