Birding Wolongshan, Sichuan, China

10,000 Birds

The first stop was Wolongshan, a place known more for its giant pandas than its birds. I do not mind pandas much as long as they do not stand in front of interesting birds, blocking my view, so this was not really an obstacle.

Yes, rhinos, red pandas, chamois, and other charismatic creatures also deserve help, but this is a birding site so you know which way we’re voting! Maybe the proposition isn’t that simple, but you can vote to allocate $40,000 from National Geographic Germany to Fundación ProAves to support conservation of the practically extinct Fuertes’s Parrot.

Saving Marine Animals that Are NOT Cute

Critter News

Examples include panda bears, wolves, elephants, tigers, etc. We hear about the problem with charismatic land species. It's those species that either have a powerful personality or a cute face that endear people to them and garner news attention. It's easier to motivate people to save them as opposed to other species that are vital, but either boring or ugly. It's the same problem with marine life. People want to save the dolphins and the sea otters, but what about the bluefin tuna?

Birding in the Dark

10,000 Birds

It’s either that or the Hindus are right, that our existence is a continuing chain of lives through re-birth, a system of action and reward, and Corey Finger’s former life was that of a panda bear whose biggest mischief was eating bamboo, while I was Pol Pot. Boy, do I have news for you. It has come to my attention recently, through the analysis of a chain of peculiar events, that Corey Finger is not a real person.

Does it Count? or Is This a List I See Before Me?

10,000 Birds

The average woman or man will tell you that they have seen a penguin, or an armadillo, or a panda. Regular readers to the blog may have noticed Redgannet’s post on some delightful finchbills he saw in China. In the post he agonised about whether they should be included on his life list due to their “doubtful provenance” I started to formulate a reply, and it got rather big, so rather that leave this on his own post, unread, I decided to post it here instead.
