Meet 7 Spring Migration Superstars- the European Bee-Eater, the Common Cuckoo, the Common Swift, the Barn Swallow, the Collared Sand Martin, the Common Ringed Plover and the White Stork. The comics have been created for Birdlife International's #SpringAlive campaign in which we introduce young birders to spring migrants. Thanks to Birdlife once again for collaborating with me.

Meet the Nutcracker, a pine gentleman! Among the many trees that forge a symbiotic alliance with the Nutcracker is the Chilgoza pine, a rare and commercially important pine variety, now threatened with extinction. Comic from my column with Sunday Midday.
Read Ananda Banerjee's article on this relationship for a more detailed insight, which also sheds light on economist Rinki Sarkar's chance discovery on the Chilgoza-Nutcracker symbiosis, and her efforts to study and conserve this relationship.
