Bay Nature is an excellent San Francisco bay area magazine that discusses all aspects of the local enviroment and, you guessed it, nature! I met their editor at a publishing event a few months ago, and we discussed how they used to have cartoons in their magazine but haven't for quite a while. I showed him some samples of my comics and illustrations, and they decided to hire me to do a cartoon/one panel comic for the winter issue, which just came out. My cartoon references the results of a study recently published by the Point Reyes Bird Observatory about how songbirds of Central California have been getting bigger over the last 40 years. You can read more about the study, but first, here's the cartoon - featuring two very fat American robin nestlings!
