Safari digiscoping in Africa

Posted Thursday 27th August 2009 at 17:27 by Dale Forbes
Hi All, I have just spent the last couple of months in southern africa and taken huge numbers of digiscoping photographs.

I have posted some photos on my regular blog, including ones on leopards, cheetah and lots of birds.

Happy birding
Dale

8/26/09 - Hawai'i Politics Threatens Native Species (Yet Again)

Posted Wednesday 26th August 2009 at 20:20 by bkrownd
Updated Thursday 27th August 2009 at 03:32 by bkrownd
In a major blow to conservation on Hawai'i I read that the Hawai'i County Council recently voted to ban the use of biocontrols to combat the spread of strawberry guava, which is second only to pigs in the destruction of native ecosystems. Various self-serving anti-conservation groups including a mishmash of groups led by some loony new-age types have opposed control of strawberry guava and have waged a loud and outrageous campaign of lies and fearmongering against the biocontrol project.

Olinda At night

Posted Wednesday 26th August 2009 at 01:22 by Francis Duggan
When shades of night cloak the forest at Olinda the silence is almost profound

A Warm Day In Latter December

Posted Wednesday 26th August 2009 at 01:15 by Francis Duggan

The myna birds are even panting and for warmer climates they seem made,
A warm day in latter December even warmer than it was yesterday
A very warm end to the old year the new year scarce thirty hours away
The windblown dust is flying in the Parkland the black...
