Hoopoe Lark

10,000 Birds

Out into the Atlantic Ocean, 400 miles from the coast of Senegal, lies an archipelago of islands known as Cape Verde. The Hoopoe Lark’s former range in Cape Verde included the island of Boa Vista from which the third part of the latin trinomial is taken. If you are interested to see more posts from Cape Verde and to increase awareness of the islands avifauna, vist Redgannet or follow this link. Birds Cape Verde Hoopoe Lark

Best Bird of the Weekend (First of June 2012)

10,000 Birds

Expect lots of excruciating details, but for now drool over his potential Cape Verde Shearwater sighting, which will be both a lifer and a rare New York sighting assuming NYARC accepts it. I have a feeling that this summer is going to be weird. How else to interpret the sudden arrival of April showers (and temperatures) in June after already enjoying summer weather?

I don’t remember who the first person was that said the words “ Cape Verde Shearwater ” but those words were uttered. Now Cape Verde Shearwater was described as a species in the 1890′s and later lumped in with Cory’s Shearwater. Cape Verde Shearwater both above and below If only I had managed to get better shots but I managed to mess up the focus, to say nothing of the motion blur.

Can you believe earth is running out of sand?

Green Prophet

Poorer countries such as Cape Verde are smuggling their sandy shorelines away to richer countries in a practice that could complicate already difficult political situations in the Middle East. British economist Milton Friedman once warned that if you put the government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years you’d have a shortage of sand. Whether governments or free markets are to blame, it is possible to deplete abundant resources such as Irish rain.

It may be hard to swallow, but Bumpus could get bumped to the back burner

10,000 Birds

There are few areas of the world where they have been introduced and not survived (Greenland and Cape Verde are examples of this bird’s local demise). The academic tour sites and the research sites were far flung across the region, so I’ve regularly traveled between the vicinity of Johannesburg, Pretoria, Kruger Park, the Waterberg, Kimberly, the Kalahari, Cape Town and a couple of other locations.

Island Nations can fight Climate Genocide with Carbon Debt & Carbon Credit Analysis

Green Blog

At the 2011 Durban Climate Conference the US, with the help of its climate criminal lackeys Australia and Canada, again succeeded in preventing requisite international climate change action. It was reported that Island States had again pleaded with other representatives to avert “ climate genocide ” but their pleas fell on deaf ears at Durban, as at Cancun, as at Copenhagen.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming. In relation to carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, Net Carbon Debt is equal to the Historical Carbon Debt (from fossil fuel burning since the start of the Industrial Revolution in circa 1750) minus the Carbon Credit (the residual carbon pollution from fossil fuel burning permitted between now and zero emissions in 2050).

Collaborative List 2017 – February

10,000 Birds

The line passing down through the Atlantic separates Iceland from Greenland and passes to the west of the Atlantic islands within the 25W line of longitude, employing a tiny kink to include the Azores and a scoop to pick up the Cape Verde Islands. The beats have been mostly sedentary during February with only Corey venturing beyond his normal range. Tom has made an altitudinal migration, but stayed within his accepted beat. Redgannet has been wandering aimlessly as is his brief.
