In 2018, scientists published 112 peer-reviewed papers using media from the Macaulay Library. Media in the Macaulay Library helped researchers discover a new species of grosbeak in the Amazon and helped us understand why birds-of-paradise not only have amazing plumage patterns, but dance moves and vocalizations as well. Researchers also used media in the Macaulay Library to assess the abundance of secretive marsh birds and determine what makes for a good leader in mixed-species foraging flocks. This list is just a small sampling of the great research being produced using media from Macaulay Library.
