I know you aren't all bird enthusiasts, but you HAVE to take a look at this link - unbelievably beautiful birds.....
The Cornell University Lab of Ornithology and National Geographic
Witness diverse strategies of evolution at work
and experience one of nature's extraordinary wonders - up close.
The Birds-of-Paradise Project reveals the astounding beauty of 39
of the most exquisitely specialized animals on earth.
After 8 years and 18 expeditions to New Guinea and Australia,
Cornell Lab scientist Ed Scholes and National Geographic photojournalist Tim Laman
succeeded in capturing images of all 39 species
in the bird-of-paradise family for the first time ever.
they are the raw data that reveal to scientists how evolution works.
The birds-of-paradise are a premier example of evolution in all its complexity and power.
Thanks for sharing Jeanne. The Cornell Ornithology Lab does remarkable work. Some months ago Kelly and I spent countless hours watching two nests, both owls and herons as they hatched and fed and raised their young. Fascinating!!
Cathy! I can't wait to play this for Lola. I just recently discovered that she is one of those cats who LOVES videos. She particularly likes aquarium videos. Does Starla watch "tv" ??
Jeanne, I add to Mom's endorsement & thanks for posting this! Simply breathtaking & Mom has a particularly good resolution on her computer (where I am now), so the video was sharp and beautiful !!
I just can't imagine seeing one of those birds for real! Shoot, I was thrilled just to see a Vermilion Flycatcher a couple of weeks ago! lol!

@ Kelly, no she's not much for the television, but then neither am I. Judge Judy right after work then it's turned off. The occasional round of the food channel, which wouldn't interest her. I do have a cat sitter DVD thanks to Jerelyn. Might give it a shot and see how she likes it. She does like watching the birds outside. Lots of crows around here.
