    Russian mothers?

    You are right! I am sorry, This was my incorrect translation of Герман Иоганзен name into English. Herman E. Johansen yes, definitely. So. An ornithological society existed in Tomsk since 1915. The founders of the society were several young people. Some of them were TSU students, but for...

    Great Grey Owl Behavior

    Is not a fact. GGO often gather together in confined areas and hunt in such a way that several birds can be seen at once. In addition, Ggo usually allows people to come within close range.

    Birds of western Siberia
