Helping a customer with an inquiry about Pesola Spring Balance Scales the other day suddenly had me reminiscing about my PhD fieldwork. One aspect of my research was looking at the availability and abundance of important insect-foods for northern bobwhite and other farmland birds in agricultural habitats in the southeastern United States.
