The Unfeathered Bird – Katrina Van Grouw
This book is not an anatomy of birds, states the first line of the introduction to The Unfeathered Bird, by Katrina Van Grouw. What is it then? It is a beautifully illustrated book dealing with ornithology or it is a gracefully annotated picture book...
I'd like to propose a toast to the newly-weds; Mr Alan and Mrs Linda Dalton. As one of THE first contributors to this part of Birdforum and one of its most inspirational members it's perhaps understandable that he's allowed his thread to slip to page 75 (just two pages behind my own) - so...
As in previous years folks, I thought it would be an idea to post the greetings messages to all, from all - here. Saves replying to seperate threads and makes a nice memento.
I'll kick off - all the best to the finest bunch of artistic practitioners, makers and supporters in web-land - have a...

I didn't know Lona and it's a very sad way to learn of her wonderful talent. A tragic bicycle accident in early March has robbed us all of a wonderful and inspirational artist. May she rest in peace and her spirit live on in the incredible work she leaves behind:

Can anyone shine light on this bird, please? It doesn't appear to have been recorded in recent times.
Call for entries:
Enter now until Jan 21st, 2012. Sounds a long way off, doesn't it!? I bet I'm emaiing at 23:57 on the 21st, as usual.
Let's see a strong hand from the forum again, eh?
Just back from collecting copious unsold work from my show in North Berwick. Taking home almost as many as went down is a sobering poke in the ribs but the trip had a most definite highlight.
