Dawn Over the Mighty Rupununi

10,000 Birds

The millions of stars and galaxies twinkling over the Rupununi Savanna in Guyana seem to reluctantly fade into a gradually lightening sky as the eastern horizon reddens. The Pakaraima mountains slowly materialize from the darkness, silently encircling the flatness of the savanna. This places feels almost as if herds of zebra and giraffe are just out of view.

The Cry of the Curlew

10,000 Birds

Curlews are birds of serious conservation concern in the UK, with numbers falling sharply this century. As usual, there are a number of reasons for this, ranging from loss of habitat and disturbance to unsustainable levels of predation.

Famous Flamingos

10,000 Birds

Back in 2016 one very unexpected bird appeared in the Mexican highlands: an American Flamingo. It took up residence for part of each year in the Parque Metropolitano of the city of León, Guanajuato, to the northeast of Guadalajara and well northwest of Mexico City. This is an urban site with a good number of birders, so it is very likely that whenever it was not reported there for a few months, it was because they it had moved elsewhere.

Last night my robins leg broke because my dog was playing too rough with her or something. I didn’t exactly see what happened maybe my dog rolled over her? But her leg is broken at the joint and I don’t know what to do.
