Bizarre behavior of a Tohee

Posted Saturday 28th May 2011 at 17:20 by Butch Davis
I observed a Male Tohee feeding his 2 fledglings then suddenly he began this bizarre behavior. He turned his left wing slightly upwards, his tail around to the side and under the wing then tucked his head at his feet under the wing and did about 2 spins. The fledglings immediately began the same behavior. There didn't seem to be a threat in the vicinity, but seemed to be more of something under the ground as the dance looked to be location specific. Anyone know what this was?

A. (Charadrius) dealbatus. I visited a new location on Saturday close to my normal weekend a haunt at Dahu, south of Haifeng in Guangdong. This time I based myself in Lufeng and cabbed down to a little village south of the town, Shanghaizai. I was primamrily trying to get closer to a sandpsit which holds Terns but I got lost and ended up on the wrong peninsular. However I managed to persuade a local fisherman to very kindly ferry me across the estuary for a small consideration. I estimated that...

Birding in Rain - Salt Lake City Utah

Posted Sunday 22nd May 2011 at 18:50 by Birding is Fun!

Birding in the rain can be fun too! For the last week in the Salt Lake area of Utah it has been raining, almost non-stop. In spite of the rain, or perhaps because of it, I added many first-of-year birds, more than a dozen species to my Utah life list, and even one new life bird. It seems that when ever I go birding in the rain - during a drizzle, not a downpour - that I usually have pretty...

Than I have Seen This Fall

Posted Sunday 22nd May 2011 at 03:33 by Francis Duggan
I have lived through many Autumns some sixty i recall
But i have never seen more butterflies and dragonflies than i have seen this Fall
They come out in the sunshine between the showers of rain
And when the sky clouds over and rain drizzles down they disappear again
Perhaps to shelter from the rain as we do 'tis an amazing sight
To see so many flying insects in the Autumn sunlight
Dragonflies of many a shape and size and millions of white butterflies...

I Often Do think Of The Beauty I've Seen

Posted Sunday 22nd May 2011 at 03:29 by Francis Duggan
I often do think of the beauty i've seen
When bluebells bloomed on the ditch of the bohreen
And hawthorns were cloaked in their white blossoms of May
In that old green Country from here far away

The dipper does sing where the Finnow does flow
Through fields where the rushes in clusters do grow
And where the shy male pheasant does cuck and crow
When the cool winds of Spring from the high country blow

The ever pleasant memories...
