Well, after 23 hours of straight travel, and a day of rest and reprieve, I find myself once again in the comfort of my own room in Boulder, Colorado. My time in Turkey was incredible, and I cannot have hoped for a more productive trip than I had. Hakan will be an excellent collaborator and from the looks of it, Bogazkent seems to be a dream-site for field work in barn swallows! 

 Top on my list of things to do now that I am back was to get a dog. Yesterday, I picked up a two year old Australian cattle dog mix from the Humane Society, and I named him Atticus. He's a sweet dog--I haven't heard him bark once--and he is still getting adjusted to a new home without the confines of a kennel. Now I can look forward to the fall semester, which has already started (I have my first class on Speciation, which is being taught by our newest faculty member and one of the world's experts on the subject) and a whooole lot of data analysis from this summer's recording. Thanks to those of you who followed my short excursion into Turkey--I hope you enjoyed it half as much as I did! I intend to maintain a blog from the field next spring cataloguing our progress. Til then.

Cheers!
