Moco-moco

10,000 Birds

The quiet village of Moco-moco in southwest Guyana was the most southerly point of our sojourn into the landlocked country some months ago. Myself and dear friend Leon blitzed across the savanna in the pre-dawn pinks and purples en route to this village as I strained my eyes trying to pick any birds from the landscape. Much of the land was parched and brown, the vegetation was stunted and windswept.

Weak/injured young Crow

Reddit Animals

A few days ago, I found a young crow in my backyard. It was trapped between my fence and my neighbor’s fence. I got it free and perched it atop the fence so it could go on its way (while Mommy and Daddy crow were screaming at me / baby). Since then, I’ve had to help it out of my yard three times. Mom and Dad were always nearby and made their presence known.

More Heath Birding around Bonn

10,000 Birds

I had just been to Wahner Heide (heath) a few weeks ago and covered that visit in my last post , but I found myself back in the same area with my parents for a short Sunday visit. The heath is actually quite extensive and there are some other areas that I would like to explore, but we went to the same spot we were at last time because it is easiest to reach.

Getting a Leg Up

10,000 Birds

During our recent California trip, I enjoyed some excellent birding. I also developed my latest manifestation of a series of skin infections that I have experienced over the past year, this one worse than all its predecessors. (Not a sugar problem, in case anyone thought of that; my fasting sugar levels are perfectly healthy.) Believe me, Staphylococcus aurea is not the kind of species I would choose to write about on 10,000 Birds.

A Gentlemen’s Big Day’s Birding

10,000 Birds

In my younger days I was very keen on what is generally known as Big Day Birding, or trying to see as many species of birds as possible in one day. In 1983 I co-wrote a book about a one-day, 24-hour competitive birdwatch that I took part in. Called The Big Bird Race , it tells the story of how my team, representing Country Life magazine , recorded 155 species in 24 hours in East Anglia (Suffolk and Norfolk).

Is there a spider that gets eaten by larger animals that has a larger secondary spider that tracks it and hunts it in order to find prey?

Reddit Animals

For some reason I remember hearing about this spider I heard it eats big animals. It's a large spider that has a little secondary spider or other type of animal that's attached to its sense of tracking and hunting other animals. I heard it will go after anything that kills the little spider or eats it just to retrieve it's body. I ate a little spider without trying to and I drank about 2 liters of apple juice to try and kill it and it was trying to crawl back out of my stomach throug

Foreign animals surviving in other climates

Reddit Animals

In The Last of Us video game, there are two scenes where they show exotic animals surviving in the North American climate. The monkeys made sense; many species of apes and monkeys are adaptable to many climates and are similar to humans in terms of anatomy. The giraffes did not. I remember reading that giraffes can’t live in areas where it goes below 50 degrees F (10 degrees C), yet they’re in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I'm a teen boy, and I raise many cats in my garden. It all started with a female cat that we took care of very well, but when she gave birth my parents refused to take care of their children, and at that time I didn't want to give them so I also raised them.

Hey everyone, I’m not so sure what to do. Was outside my apartment by the dumpster and saw these 2 stacked animal cages (1 for dog and 1 for cat) absolutely FULL of poop. Like FULL, everywhere, the entire bottom of the cage is poop. Everything is covered in poop. It seems that they were keeping there animals locked up in these filthy cages and abusing them for long periods of time.

Advice needed, please! Likely pregnant roaming female doggo!

Reddit Animals

I have seen a grown, white, German shepherd/slight mix of some sort roaming my neighborhood for weeks now, neighbors assure me she's owned, but she is out without anyone watching her, almost every damned morning, without a collar. Aside from her possibility of being hit, or attacking other animals or possibly humans that make her feel unsafe (she's fairly friendly, originally a little cautious but warms up quickly) she is very obviously unfixed.

Can anyone identify these bugs I've found in my flat?

Reddit Animals

These seem to live inside cloth items. Such as clothes, bed sheets, cardboard boxes and such. As the second image shows they are about 2cm long and this appears to be the final adult version. With the younger forms being smaller and lighter. Location is East Scotland. Dundee to be specific. They seem to become more prevalent in the summer. I'm currently moving my stuff back home and don't wish to bring these back to my parents house and infect them.
