Immature bald eagle causes some serious shenanigans at Santa Barbara Zoo. On a side note, Karen pointed me towards another wild eagle that got flirty with a captive eagle at the Orange County Zoo. Guys who make bird repellents say they can cut down on bird deaths. Both Flock Buster (here's the ingredients) and Bird Bright ultraviolet paint say they can help.
Steve Dale from Cat Channel tries to extend an olive branch to birders over the whole feral cat issue...all while still getting in a good poke at bird advocates.
I'm very confused. I love stuff from Princeton University Press, but illustrated field checklists confuse me. This book is an illustrated checklist of the Birds of North America and Greenland by Norman Arlott.
It looks like a field guide...but it's not. I like the illustrations but I don't understand it as a checklist. But if you're looking for a book with all the birds in North American (and Greenland) you'll find this book handy. Although, if it's a checklist, where are the boxes to check?
