Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
i like the natural poses they've put them in.
This gallery is very well. You can meet a lot of birds.Tomás.
Love the little birds William.. and the owl :)
Wonderful. That long-eared owl is my favorite in this serie.
A grand variety of birds here. Love the red hooded bird with the stretched wing and the owl.
I'm going to start having dreams of birds, Robert. Have you seen Hitchcock's "The Birds"? What an assortment of birds!JanisGDP
Schöne verschiedene Vögel.GrußNoke
It's the owl that fascinates me (at least I think that's an owl)...they are such incredible creatures. We had two that sat up in a big oak tree in the yard of a former house and they would watch us on the deck in the evening.
@Tex: I do too.@Linda: indeed!@Tomas: you can.@Grace: it is quite an owl.@Jan: it looks formidable.@Gemma: thank you!@Janis: I have seen it.@Noke: thank you.@Lowell: I do find them fascinating.
i wish they could be flying now. i love seeing birds i have never seen but makes me sad to see them not moving? so torn between those feelings. nuts.
I saw a few friends
I'd rather see all of them alive....
It's rather mind boggling when we see so many species of birds. Most people have no idea of the number of species.
Lots of birds in all shapes and sizes.
An interesting selection. I guess this is the only way many people will ever see these birds.
Many of them I'm not familiar.
@Beth: at the very least this becomes an educational experience.@Cloudia: as did I.@Norma: me too.@Red: there are so many out there.@Sharon: that's true.@Mo: yes, at least this close.@Tamago: we have some that only range in North America. Many birds from Asia or Africa are completely unknown to me.
I can remember seeing the drawers full of bird samples at the ROM - there is something a bit distressing about it. I think there is more capture & release research done these days than in the past, thank goodness.
An interesting exhibition, William!
These kinds of displays always give me the creeps. Better to photograph them in the wild.
Many of those were in the Pacific Northwest or at least they looked similar.
What a pleasure it must be to tour this place!
@RedPat: a lot these days would be.@Marleen: it is!@Revrunner: I agree.@Mari: a lot of birds are wide spread.@Kate: I always enjoy visits here.
Ohhh, I like that second to last one the best.
Quite a display. You always manage to get such clear photos.
What a great exhibit. Thanks for sharing it!
Love natural history museums. They remind me of school excursions :)
