The Shorebirds of North America: A Natural History and Photographic Celebration–A Book Review

10,000 Birds

“You don’t like shorebirds?” my birding friend asked me in a tone of surprise, shock, and a tiny bit of horror. We had been talking about summer and I imagine that when she exclaimed happily, “Soon it will be time to go to the East Pond for shorebirds!” my face betrayed me. “I love shorebirds,” I replied, “I just don’t always like them.” My feelings about shorebirds came back to me a few days later, as I observed a mixed group of peeps and Dowitchers at Mecox Inlet, eastern Long Island, not far

Terror on the moors

10,000 Birds

I’ve just returned from the Shetland Islands. You might be expecting me to start writing about the amazing colonies of Northern Gannets Morus bassanus or Atlantic Puffins Fratercula arctica , among others. But no, my story today is about the birds that come in to breed on the heather moorland which dominates the high ground. This is prime habitat for many birds and Shetland is a great place to see them in relatively pristine conditions.

Saving the Spotted Owl—Zalea’s Story: A KidLit Bird Book Review

10,000 Birds

Award-winning free-lance science journalist Nicola Jones , most noted for her work on climate change and environmental issues, ventured into the book world with a picture book on the wildlife rehabilitation efforts for one of North America’s most endangered bird species, the Northern Spotted Owl. With a readership primarily of students, Jones—wisely, I believe—refrained from including the controversial efforts to kill Barred Owls in order to save the spotted ones.

Watching a Red-tailed Hawk nest

10,000 Birds

Sometimes, patience and determination are rewarded. This is what happened to the hapless pair of Red-tailed Hawks who were nesting on the nearby hospital’s chimney’s catwalk. On 28 April, looking through my spotting scope, I saw a fuzzy, white head rising above the edge of their nest. I call them hapless because it took them four years to have a viable nesting season.

Birding Shanghai in June 2024

10,000 Birds

Seeing a Black-throated Laughingthrush at Nanhui was a surprise. I listed it on eBird – but my experience (and not only mine) is that the motto of eBird reviewers generally is “If I see it, it’s a vagrant – if you see it, it’s an escapee.” And so it turned out. The Black-winged Cuckooshrike is breeding in several Shanghai locations – I suspect that some trees near the Nanhui hotel might be another one, given the vigorous singing of this bird.

Red Grouse Restored: a Full Species Again

“One sunny morning a few months ago, as I stood on a mountain slope among bracken, ling, and furze, and scattered masses of grey rock, watching a small party of grouse near me, it struck me that I had never looked on a more beautiful creature than this bird: – so finely shaped and richly coloured, and proud and free in carriage, and in such perfect harmony with the rough vegetation and that wild and solitary nature amid which it exists.

Could an animal do something completely differing from their natural behavior for no apparent reason

I know this is a grim example but imagine a human just goes and murders someone they know for no reason maybe they are psychotic and want thrill or something could an animal do this ? Like could a dog just turn on their owner and try to kill them for no reason even if the owner has fostered them and loved them since birth and they were fully taken care of ?
