What is that little grey bird?

Posted Wednesday 4th March 2009 at 06:57 by Gemfyre
I often do a pass by Herdsman Lake on the way to work. Yesterday while driving along Lakeside drive I spotted a small grey bird in the grass among the Purple Swamphens. Lucky it's a quiet road because I quickly braked and though to myself, "That was too big to be a dove. And it didn't look quite like a peewee." I turned and parked near where the bird sat and immediately pinned it as a lapwing, but which kind? I put my ever-present binoculars on it. Banded Lapwing. A bird I have...

Help Support Vulture Conservation

Posted Friday 13th July 2012 at 22:08 by ranalobo
The more conservationists I meet, the more I am impressed by how many talented, dedicated, and passionate people there are in the world who are devoting much of their lives to protecting a species, a landscape, an ecosystem.

I had the opportunity to visit Dr. Munir Virani in Kenya and observe first hand the amazing work he is doing for raptor conservation. He is participating in TED talks, with a short presentation on "why he loves vultures". It is definitely worth watching....

Watching Birds Begins So Innocently (by Tim Krohn)

It’s like most hobbies. It starts off innocently enough. A little cheap feeder hanging outside the window, filled with cheap bird seed.

…First it was just small branches that the squirrels would move down to launch themselves onto my feeders.

Lose a Glaucous, gain an Iceland.

Posted Sunday 22nd February 2009 at 21:24 by BirderBoy
Well it turns out the Glaucous Gull I saw on Friday was actually a 1st winter Iceland Gull!
I'm don't know how to feel.
I'm sad that it wasn't a Glaucous Gull but happy it was an Iceland.
Iceland's are rarer though so actually that's better.
Yay!

On A Winter's Morning

Posted Sunday 27th June 2010 at 02:42 by Francis Duggan
A bank holiday monday morning in the old country town
Newly fallen dry leaves of yellow and brown
By the chilly winds blown along the sidewalks of the quiet street
Before Nature's cold breath they are forced to retreat
On the second week of June ten weeks from the Spring
The silver billed magpie the only bird to sing
No warmth in the sun on this cold Winter's day
Yet ten weeks in time will quickly tick away
Most shops closed for the day few...
