Congratulations to Per Henningsson on his thesis defense on 29 January. With opponent Bret Tobalske we witnessed a very interesting discussion about bird flight, and swift flight in particular. Now we are looking forward to a great party tonight, and wish Dr Per a successful postdoc and career! The red-flanked blue tail Tarsiger cyanurus shown her to the right is Per's latest acquisition on his Swedish list. Congratulations also to that!
