Geological Quote of the Week - Bird Frisbee

This quote is from a book about evolutionary convergence.

"Continuing work has shown that the resolution of oilbirds' echolocation is rather crude, at least when it comes to avoiding discs deliberately suspended in their flight path."

This just makes me think of scientists throwing disks at birds and watching them crash.
