Posted Monday 25th August 2008 at 10:31 by Tanny

A Ten Duck Day

Posted Wednesday 8th October 2008 at 07:25 by Gemfyre
Although my current job isn't perfect (I'm working as a secretary for a solicitor, when I have a degree in Conservation Biology), the location is brilliant. Herdsman Lake is a 3 minute drive away so I often go there for lunch.

Today is the first really warm day we've had in ages. And in the mere hour I had for lunch I spotted all ten duck species that you can see at this lake. Getting 7 - 8 species is usual, to get the full 10 there has to be the rare Freckled Duck in residence -...

I just came back from the private nature reserve and lodge Parque do Zizo, in southern São Paulo State. The reserve lies in an isolated and very large area of Atlantic Rainforest (the largest one left actually) and is growing in popularity for its great birds. This time it wasn't different.

I spent 2 days there with some friends. The day we arrived was very hot and sunny, so the forest was quite silent and we didn't see much on that afternoon besides the usuals, like Blond-crested...

How do huge bird colonies synchronize?

Posted Tuesday 17th March 2009 at 16:41 by BirdsandScience

Colonial breeding synchrony seems to be a manifestation of the “harmony of the colonies”, when, in fact, it may be the outcome of birds being scared of their neighbours. A bird colony is a natural spectacle: hundreds or thousands of birds breeding at the same time, and often decoupled from breeding time of other nearby colonies.
