Mixed Feeding Flock #10 - Conservation



We've been blogging about a lot of things lately, but not as much as we should about our favorite subject, the most important one: conservation!!

With that in mind, here's a reminder that Earth Hour is just three days away, on March 27. That's also Princess Lisa's birthday!! Around the world (at 8:30pm our time), people around the world will shut off their lights for one hour in a statement of intent to do something about climate change.

Here's the video...





Meanwhile, the American Bird Conservancy and its partners have launched a new program, Conservation Birding, that helps birders in the America choose lodges that promote bird conservation in the Americas. Check it out at http://www.conservationbirding.org/.

Finally, purely for your viewing pleasure, one of McClatchy's newspapers, the Bradenton Herald, has an amazing photo gallery of Sandhill Cranes and their chicks. Amazing photos - well worth stopping by for.
