Windjana Gorge in 2020

10,000 Birds

As we all well know there is something very different about 2020. Following on from our first camping trip for 2020 we took another camping trip a bit further afield. There are a lot of differences to 2020 to other years, but some parts of life carry on as if nothing is different.

Black Kites breeding

10,000 Birds

We really don’t like the presence of Black Kites along the beach when the Pied Oystercatchers are breeding. Of course Black Kites also breed and at the moment there is a nest very close to the highway. The post Black Kites breeding appeared first on 10,000 Birds.

The Birds are All Right

10,000 Birds

It was the month of March, 2017, when I went to Lake Cuitzeo to check up on our migratory waterfowl and shorebirds one last time before they travelled north to breed. Kind of shows how we have all felt in 2020, doesn’t it?

10,000 Birds

Now, I am holding the 5th edition (2020) in my hands – what has changed in the meantime, especially in the 9 years since the 4th edition? This region is so far from the northern breeding grounds that there are no migratory corridors to show.

Bank and Barn Swallows also migrate through in huge numbers, maybe even the majority of the individuals of these common species that breed in North America. Maybe the excitement of leaving the breeding grounds has been vanquished by the realities of survival during a dangerous passage.

Howell does not place the White-tailed Hawk anywhere near Morelia, but I have seen it in every cuadrant of the city, and know for a fact that it breeds near the church I pastor. I have written about this before, and I’ll probably write about it again.

Hornbills of Yunnan

10,000 Birds

This is not due to its breeding habits, which it shares with the other hornbills – though those habits could well be described as appalling. China is not that well-known for its hornbills, but in Yunnan province, on the border to Myanmar, some species can be found.

How to find the Ural Owl in Serbia

10,000 Birds

The usual way to find an owl would be to listen to its territorial call in the breeding season (to listen and not to lure it – I oppose the playback ), but this species is even less vocal than most other owls.

Splitsville

10,000 Birds

Splits were once a much more subjective determination, based on differences in appearance, vocalizations, habits, and breeding preferences. We call this a “lump” But hey, this is 2020.
