  6. I'm going to start having dreams of birds, Robert. Have you seen Hitchcock's "The Birds"? What an assortment of birds!

  8. 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.

  12. It's rather mind boggling when we see so many species of birds. Most people have no idea of the number of species.

  14. An interesting selection. I guess this is the only way many people will ever see these birds.

  16. @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.

  17. 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.

  19. These kinds of displays always give me the creeps. Better to photograph them in the wild.

  20. Many of those were in the Pacific Northwest or at least they looked similar.

  22. @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.
