From Forbes:
Where Do Birds Go In A Hurricane?

There is an interesting video showing birds in the eye of the storm. I pray that all the humans and animals are safe each time there is a storm.

Loved it. And speaking of cats, this is an article in the current National Geographics:
What if Everything You Think About Cats Is Wrong?
A study of feline behavior shows that cats can be taught—despite their reputation for being untrainable and aloof.

this is our Steve. Awesome guy. He is our falconer who stays 24 hours a day at our hack site at Pembina. He just is amazing . He was telling us how he did that with the gyrofalcon. one of the good ones :15heartbeat:

I iwll be doing our write up soon on the pembina. He really cares,. This is wh2y I get os upset when some rehab sites criticize falconers there are falconers and there are ones like STeve. when you have strict laws in place for falocners, you get good ones. when you let anyone take a falcon, just because they want one, you get bad ones.(one that do not know what they are doing) Steve and a few more of our Alberta ones have rehabilitated many of our falcons. Miss Edmonton was one of those that one of our falconers, rehabbed.

I hear what you are saying about defending the falconers. We owe falconers much of the success of the falcon reintroduction. Since most of the wild bred birds were producing eggs that were not sustainable, the falconers provided birds that had not ingested DDT. It was those birds who were able to produce eggs that did not break, thus hatching the generations of falcons that we see today.

And I hear you that there are probably falconers who are less than perfect. I am not perfect so I can forgive and understand.

Man sentenced for killing bald eagle for stealing food
PORTSMOUTH, Va. — A Virginia man who admitted he shot a bald eagle and then ran it over several times with an all-terrain vehicle has been sentenced to a month of house arrest.

The Virginian-Pilot reports 62-year-old Allen H. Thacker also was ordered Monday to complete 100 hours of community service at an area wildlife refuge and pay $500 in fines along with $1,500 in restitution.

Thacker pleaded guilty to violating the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act in July. He told officers he killed the eagle in March because he’d seen the bird killing small game and eating fish on his property. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Kosky declined to comment on the plea agreement, as did Thacker and his attorney.
