Soundshader published on Github a study of using the DFT shift theorem to generate spectrograms from birdsong and compare them to spectrograms generated from musical instruments.

Tricking Birds With Magic

Researchers at Cambridge studied how well hand based magic tricks work on Eurasian Jays. The clever birds saw through two of the three magic tricks, possibly because the birds had no expectations around human hand mechanics.

The Best Physics Movies

Wonder of Physics published a great list of the best science movies, many of which are rate above 7 on IMDB, which I have found is a good indicator of a good film. Special shout out for Predestination, the best time travel movie ever made.
