Mixed Feeding Flock, #14


   Time for our occasional round-up of birding and nature news...

   * Following on our earlier post about The Big Year movie, the North American Birders' Forum has more photos from the filming, and discussion of the upcoming flick..

   * As regular visitors may have noted, we have changed the look of The Birdcouple blog a bit. We felt it was time to freshen things up a bit, and we are still tinkering with the blog's new look. Hope you like it.

   * This is the "Terror Bird":




     According to the BBC, it roamed the earth millions of years ago, after the demise of the dinasours. There were up to 18 species of this flightless bird, and they ranged from 3 feet to 10 feet tall. That would be a great get for one's life list.

    * Finally, Dave over at Bird From Behind has a must-read post reminding us that, while the Gulf oil spill is off our TV screens and front pages, all is not well with nature...

Thanks for the link buddies!

It's been a while since I've gone blogging, all this bad news has got me in a badddd mood.

I like the cave painting at the top of the blog! Cool stuff from those cave folks...
