Baby Bird Identification: A North American Guide–A Book Review

10,000 Birds

Everyone loves baby birds; 10,000 Birds even had a Baby Bird Week once upon a time! Baby birds are cuteness personified, possibly even more so than other baby animals, including human babies, and pose interesting questions of survival and development. So, I was intrigued when I saw that Comstock Publishing, an arm of Cornell University Press, was publishing Baby Bird Identification: A North American Guide by Linda Tuttle-Adams.

Ocala, Florida This is Sassy she had been brought into a local vet's office in Georgia, the owner wanted to euthanize her due to just not wanting Sassy anymore, due to owner being pregnant, that's it nothing else! Well the vet refused to euthanize a healthy dog. Sassy was posted on reddit & found a home.

The Biggest Urban Pygmy Cormorant Roost is Finally Protected!!

10,000 Birds

It all started during the icy February of 1996. The night temperatures in Belgrade, Serbia, were already below minus 10 Celsius / 14 degrees Fahrenheit for two weeks. Everything was frozen solid and pack ice was floating down the Danube. Hiding from the elements at the riverbank, I was sitting in a Yugo and staring at the murky sky. Whenever the windscreen got frozen, I could not afford to turn the engine on due to petrol shortages (during the UN embargo on the import of fuel to the former Yugos

“Birds – Poetry in the Sky”

10,000 Birds

One need not ponder whether Birds: Poetry in the Sky is more a bird book or an art book: it fits each category. But whatever shelf it belongs on is really irrelevant – it’s enough to say that the book is magnificent. The multi-award-winning photographer Christian Spencer, an Australian native, has lived in Brazil for many years; the birds of both countries are represented here.

Why You Should Make Friends with Biologists

10,000 Birds

Way back in 2014, when I saw my first Chestnut-sided Shrike-Vireo near the little town of Pino Real, and shared the sighting on a birders’ chat group, it took just over a month for the first biologist/ornithologist to visit me. It seems he had looked long and wide for this species. Happily, I was able to show him three individuals that day. And after all, who wouldn’t want to see this beauty?

Bird of the Year?

10,000 Birds

Yes, I understand what you are thinking. How can one, in what is barely the second week of the first month of the year – even think of suggesting a Bird of the Year? Well, let me explain. I began recording my bird sightings with photographs in late 2009, and since then I have seen (or at least heard) a fair proportion of species recorded within my home country of Trinidad & Tobago.

Birding Napo, Guangxi, China – part 2

10,000 Birds

On the third day in Napo, the local driving me to a bird hide was coughing a lot. And I was the only guest in an otherwise deserted hotel (shutdown due to lack of staff, with everybody having caught covid). Still, I was healthy. Healthy enough to enjoy the sight of some Blue-winged Minlas , both in a bird hide and in a local park. Birds not used to having their photos taken often do not understand the concept of looking into the camera.

A Year of Birding in Costa Rica- Highlights and a Few Birds Missed

10,000 Birds

Another year of birding in Costa Rica has come to an end, another one begins. What will the new year bring? I bet some tanager flocks will be in the cards; birding in Costa Rica tends to deliver. There should be a good number of hummingbirds and quetzals are waiting in the mountains. It’s 2023 already and I have already started this year of birding.

Afforestation 2022

10,000 Birds

Eighteen months ago, I wrote about a particular passion project of mine, which is to create a mini-forest on part of our church’s one acre of land. This project qualifies as “afforestation”, which is the creation of a forest in a site that was not originally forested — as opposed to reforestation, which creates a new forest on a site that was previously forested but has been logged.

Some common birds of Shennongjia, China

10,000 Birds

The photos in this post were taken in 2015 and 2016 – I was not only an amazingly attractive, almost young person then, but also a surprisingly bad photographer. I also only managed to see rather common bird species at Shennongjia, a nature reserve in Hubei province, China. If this does not put you off from reading this post, you are hopeless anyway, so just proceed … The Brown-breasted Bulbul might well be the most common bird at Shennongjia, so it seems appropriate to start with it

A Christmas surprise in Broome

10,000 Birds

Our Christmas Day in Broome was much like any other Christmas day in that we did a bird list for the day. We usually expect to see over one hundred bird species around the local area during the day and this year was no different. However, we had a beautiful surprise put on by Mother Nature, which really started our day off well. We had a walk around our local area to start our list after putting a few bird species on from our garden whilst we had a coffee.

Isolated showers shouldn’t keep you at home!

10,000 Birds

At this time of year in Broome we regularly encounter isolated showers and they can be torrential, but they may only be over a small area. It might be raining at home, but go one kilometre away and it is dry or vice versa. The Bureau of Meteorology rain gauge in Broome is at the airport and the readings from the gauge can be quite different to another rain gauge a few kilometres away.

Migrants at the Beach

Those who are familiar with my ethos know quite well that I am very much for the experience as opposed to the payoff. Some call it a preference for the journey rather than the destination. Nomenclature aside, few can deny the benefits of simply being in nature, when there are birds around that’s a bonus! I have been most fortunate to spend all my life thus far as an island creature, never far away from the ocean.

Birding the Eshowe area, South Africa

10,000 Birds

The reason to come to Eshowe as a birder is to see Dhlinza Forest, a subtropical forest important for its biodiversity. The Dhlinza Forest has a boardwalk stretching 125 metres through the forest understory to a 20 metre high viewing platform. As usual, my experience with such boardwalks was somewhat underwhelming, as was Eshowe as a whole, but there were still a few birds worth mentioning at the forest and in the area surrounding Eshowe.

We are currently in the Wet Season in Broome and we have had plenty of rain already this year and there is more to come.

Streeter’s Jetty in Broome is heritage listed and is known to have existed since 1897 and is an excellent place to go birding.

While Napos relative remoteness made it seem less vulnerable to covid, on the second day of our hotel stay we were informed that they could no longer service the hotel rooms as all the hotel service staff had contracted the virus.

Broome’s birds get a battering

10,000 Birds

One of the best indications that we are going to get rain is that our pink Storm Lilies start to flower. The flowers above are Zephyranthes grandiflora and they are a small bulb that flowers when the air pressure drops. It doesn’t matter how much water you give them to encourage flowers, because a storm is required before they flower. We also have white Rain Lilies Pancratium zeylanicum that also depend on the air pressure changing to flower.

Ducks and grebes paddled around, Anhingas swam beneath the surface, occasionally appearing with a skewered fish.
