Riding The Winds

I can see some of the birdwatchers among my readers spending a lot of time in this particular gallery. More of the displays today. 


There are three dioramas set up with different species in different parts of the country. A broad-winged hawk is perched along a shoreline of the Great Lakes.


A diorama set in Saskatchewan includes greater sage grouse, with the male showing off.


And this one is set in the far west, featuring three different species.

  1. I know so little about birds and there are so many different types of birds in the world.

  2. I'd be one of those lingering there. There was a very fine collection of the taxidermists art at Woollaton Hall, just over the road from where I attended Nottingham University - if I'd spent as much time in the University's library then life might have turned out differently.

  3. I don't know much about birds except that some of them are very cute, because I always had cats and the two don't go well together !
