The northern wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe) is a small (approx. 25 g), insectivorous migrant with one of the largest ranges of any songbird in the world, breeding from the eastern Canadian Arctic across Greenland, Eurasia and into Alaska (AK). However, there is no evidence that breeding populations in the New World have established overwintering sites in the Western Hemisphere. Using light-level geolocators, we demonstrate that individuals from these New World regions overwinter in northern sub-Sahara Africa, with Alaskan birds travelling approximately 14 500 km each way and an eastern Canadian Arctic bird crossing a wide stretch of the North Atlantic (approx. 3500 km). These remarkable journeys, particularly for a bird of this size, last between one to three months depending on breeding location and season (autumn/spring) and result in mean overall migration speeds of up to 290 km d−1. Stable-hydrogen isotope analysis of winter-grown feathers sampled from breeding birds generally support the notion that Alaskan birds overwinter primarily in eastern Africa and eastern Canadian Arctic birds overwinter mainly in western Africa. Our results provide the first evidence of a migratory songbird capable of linking African ecosystems of the Old World with Arctic regions of the New World.

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. MDT. “We are very excited for the opportunity to play the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis,” said BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. “It’s always an honor and a privilege to play against a service academy, like we did annually for many years with Air Force. We first played the Midshipmen in the inaugural Holiday Bowl in 1978. The opportunity to visit Navy’s hallowed campus will be an amazing experience for our football team.”The Labor Day contest is part of a two-game series with Navy. Details for the game at LaVell Edwards Stadium will be announced at a later date. The 2019 Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy champion, Navy is coming off an 11-2 season that included a 7-1 resume as the West Division co-champions in the American Athletic Conference. The Midshipmen defeated Kansas State in the 2019 Liberty Bowl to tie the Naval Academy record of 11 wins and finish the season ranked No. 20 in both the final national polls. “Speaking on behalf of our players and coaches, we are extremely excited for this opportunity to play Navy on Labor Day to open the 2020 season and appreciate all the work put in by Tom Holmoe and Navy to schedule this game,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said. “Navy plays great football and we have the utmost appreciation and respect for all of the sacrifices the members of the military academies make on all of our behalf. Ken (Nuimatalolo) is a great football coach and a personal friend who I have known since I was young and always admired both as a person and as a coach. We are looking forward to the matchup.” The Labor Day game will mark the third meeting between BYU and Navy. The two teams met in the inaugural Holiday Bowl in 1978 with Navy coming away with a 23-16 victory. BYU gained revenge in 1989 when the Cougars traveled to Annapolis and won 31-10.The Cougars and Midshipmen will also participate in the first true night game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium since 2005, when Navy lost a hard fought 40-38 game to Stanford.Prior to recent schedule changes made by the FBS conferences in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, BYU was slated to face rival Utah in its opener while Navy was originally scheduled to face Notre Dame in a series that had taken place each season since 1927—the longest continuous intersectional rivalry in college football at 93 games. BYU will continue to announce additional games for the 2020 season as they are finalized.

Back in January, the roof on Merriweather Post Pavilion, the beloved outdoor concert venue in Columbia, Maryland, collapsed. The venue was acting on renovation plans that have been in the works since 2015, with the majority of the work being done centered on raising the pavilion’s roof from 33 feet high to 53 feet high. With the new roof almost in its new position, before it could be secured, the roof unexpected collapsed during a particularly windy night. However, after the news broke, the venue assured fans that they’d be able to reopen before the 2018 concert season. With a crew working round the clock with a shortened 3-and-a-half month timeline, this week, Merriweather Post Pavilion has announced that, true to their word, they have reopened for the 2018 season.As reported by WAMU 88.5, Audrey Fix Schaefer, the communications director for the I.M.P., the company that runs Merriweather Post Pavilion, explained that the roof collapsing was actually a blessing in disguise, noting “It was way easier to start over” than renovate the structure, like they were originally planning. She also notes that while the pavilion looks identical, it now sports new lighting, improved acoustics, a more sound structure, and new seating.She also added that at the end of the day, the most important thing is that no one was injured when the roof initially collapsed, adding that “Honestly, that’s the only thing that matters… Everything else, people write checks for.”Merriweather Post Pavilion opened to the public this weekend, hosting M3 Rock Festival, an 80s glam-rock lineup festival on Friday and Saturday. For more information about MPP’s 2018 summer lineup, which includes two nights of Phish in August in addition to Robert Plant, Ray LaMontagne, Foo Fighters, Dispatch, David Byrne, you can head here.[H/T WAMU]
