A special thanks to Wayne for offering to help me edit while I tried to make it through my Thesis Defense this week. I did not ask and he offered. Thank you Wayne.

Dr. Warrick provided the following papers for additional research.

One of our papers is accessible to all from the journal: http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.or...

Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please share the video. If you REALLY liked it, feel free to pitch a few dollars towards their college fund by clicking here:

Warm Regards,
