Award-winning nature writer and photographer, Todd Pusser, wrote an article about my king rail research at Mackay Island NWR for Wildlife in North Carolina magazine. It was a blast to have Todd tag along for our fieldwork on the refuge!

Our paper on automated detection of king rails was covered by The Wildlife Society in early May! Click on the picture below to read the article!
