For WHO's birders
I thought you might like this video.

https://youtu.be/I7dYd-Ra8bk


It's a compilation of different birds singing. Beautiful photography. If you expand the 'title' under the video it gives a list of species and the times they pop up in the video. Most of the species are familiar to us in the UK, but there are some 'exotics' (the cranes - wow, what a noise!)

It was filmed in Belarus. The guy has a channel you can subscribe to.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and maybe it'll take your mind off you-know-what for a few blessed minutes.

Are they blond haired and muscled?
Perhaps an aryan strain?

Jays have beautiful blue eyes. My jays come really close to my door.

Hermit Road..we've had a couple of Jays in our street over the last few months, I love the shade of blue on them.

Tried taking photos a few times, but they have a knack of flying off at the precise second that you think 'this'll make a good photo'

Re: For WHO's birders
Don't know if anyone has mentioned it but they've released some white tailed Eagles on the Isle of Wight in the last couple of years. Even though some hung around others flew up to Scotland as well as over to Essex etc. These birds huh? They just won't do what you want.

Re: For WHO's birders
Just saw a couple of Jays in the garden.

Highlight of the morning.

On the flip side, some little rascal has stolen the spring bulbs I just planted.

Nature gives, and nature takes away.

Ahh, the fabled bearded vulture.

If you happen to be strolling along minding your own business and you get totalled by an incoming fumer, you’ll know what to blame.

Re: For WHO's birders
Lammergeier, a type of vulture, invented cosmetics.

Their body plumage is white, but they dye it orange by bathing in iron-rich pools or by rubbing against ochre deposits.

Lammergeier which succeed in dying themselves deeper orange achieve greater reproductive success, although ornithologists are unsure whether this is because orange lammergeier look sexier to other lammergeier, or because ochre has anti-parasite properties.

It is at least possible that the use of ochre by our ancestors was inspired by lammergeier, as there is a great overlap between the ancient ranges of Homo sapiens and neanderthalis and lammergeier.
