Listening to Falcons: The Peregrines of Tom Cade

10,000 Birds

Author Sherrida Woodley thinks deeply about dearly departed birds. such as California Condors and Passenger Pigeons. She also has an abiding interest in important figures in natural history. She’s already written about Rachel Carson: Secret Birder. Now, Sherri turns her attention to an ornithologist with a soft spot for raptors… The boy pushed through scrub mesquite following a trail strangely different from the rest of his grandfather’s land.

Environmental Economics

Ladies and gentleman, an actual press release from the Department of Energy (with EMPHASIS ADDED):  “Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America’s allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy. Further, more exports of U.S. LNG to the world means more U.S. jobs and more domestic economic growth and cleaner air here at home and around the globe,” said U.S. Under Secretary of Energy Mark W.

Where Are You Birding This First Weekend of June 2019?

10,000 Birds

The first weekend of June usually signals the tail end of any migratory activity that was still passing through your region. While this may inspire nostalgia for the avian excitement of, say, two weeks ago, there’s no need to put your optics on ice just yet. Early June offers much for those willing to embrace its opportunities. Corey and I will both be in the NYC area this weekend, but only one of us will probably be birding.

Lamplighter Brewing Company: Birds of a Feather

I said in my last review that it wouldn’t be long before we saw yet another New England India Pale Ale (IPA) at Birds and Booze – and here we are with one more. I’m not sure I have anything new to say about the style at this point, but with everyone and their mother making the New England IPAs these days, it probably doesn’t matter. Breweries are putting out an awful lot of the hazy stuff and, for the most part, they’re getting pretty good at it.

The Burning Problem

Greentumble

Imagine if our atmosphere was nearly. 100% methane and we woke up every morning to the smell of greenhouse gasses. This could happen because of food waste–food that is discarded or lost uneaten. When food is wasted, garbage trucks take it to landfills to dispose of refuse and other waste materials. No one knows that when food reaches landfills it releases a greenhouse gas, methane. As a sixth grader at The Pegasus School, I have researched this topic in depth for two months.

Recipes with lemons and limes to get your dirt out!

Lemon juice, white vinegar and essential oils – that’s all you need in order to avoid the negative health and environmental effects of cleaning. Did you ever notice how many cleaning products you use when you clean your house?

Birds of Tierra Caliente 2

10,000 Birds

In my last post, I introduced you to some of my favorite birds from the tiny town of Paso Ancho, Michoacán. This town sits at the edge of a river in Mexico’s Tierra Caliente (Hot Country), an inland basin between the coastal Sierra Madre del Sur and the much higher Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. Paso Ancho has an altitude of 3,300 feet, which would make it high and cool in most of the U.S.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Last of May 2019)

10,000 Birds

In the midst of a three-day Memorial Day observance, many American birders still have a day left to nail down a BBOTW. If you’re not happy with your progress so far, make the most of what is left of May. Spotting Blackpoll Warblers around here breaks bittersweet; obviously, anyone would enjoy spotting one of these monochromatic songbirds, but with this late migrant comes the promise of months of little more than resident breeders. Don’t tell me migration is over already!

White-throated Kingfishers in Singapore

10,000 Birds

Singapore is a great location for observing Kingfishers and there are several species to observe. The largest Kingfisher is the Stork-billed Kingfisher and the smallest Kingfisher is the Black-backed Kingfisher. White-throated Kingfishers are a substantial size of around 28cm and are quite widespread throughout the island. Our first encounter with a White-throated Kingfisher in Singapore in March was at Gardens by the Bay , but it was a brief observation in poor light.

Sodastream, the Israeli company manufacturing devices producing soda gas beverages in reusable bottles (which sold to Pepsi Co for 3 billion last December), has been on a continuing upswing since featuring actress Scarlett Johansson to be its anti-BDS advertising queen in 2014. Since then, the company has been a rising star in Israel’s manufacturing community, as well as being a friend of the environment and an advocate of peaceful co-existence between peoples.

Highschool kids develop algae superfood to feed Africa’s hungry

Green Prophet

Algae as superfood? Countries like Japan have already known for years about the possibilities of using algae as a nutritious food product, as any sushi fancier will attest to. Growing algae to feed the world’s hungry may soon become a viable reality as some forms of algae like spirulina, actually a form of cyanobacteria and up to now much more expensive to produce as a food source.

The Black Long-Spine Sea Urchin – a familiar creature from the Indian and Southern Pacific Oceans –is appearing the Mediterranean, with some serious implications for people and the ecosystem. Those who dive, snorkel or even just paddle in the coastal waters of the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean or the Southern Pacific Ocean, are well familiar with the sight of the Black Long-Spine Sea Urchin.

Save the turtles – from people!

Green Prophet

There is a vast number of captive turtles kept as pets in homes, and it is up to their owners to give these wild animals their freedom back. At the Gazelle Valley Park in Jerusalem, an unusual animal welfare initiative aims to protect the local turtle population. Turtles aren’t domestic animals and should live in their natural habitat. But over the past decades, massive development has taken place over what were previously open areas where turtles once thrived.

Run in sprints – for your heart and perfect body, new research confirms it

Green Prophet

Want a summer body and the fastest way to lose weight? Run in sprints, according to new study. If your knees are still young and your mind willing, running is by far the best way to keep your heart and bones strong. It’s by far the easiest way to lose weight but you need to be committed. Recent studies show that swimming and cycling may have very little positive effect against osteoporosis (and can even be putting your bones at risk).

Is it legal and safe to use Spyzie to spy on another person’s mobile?

Green Prophet

Is it okay to spy on someone if they are polluting or harming the earth? Or to monitor teens if we suspect they may be in harm’s way? When we talk about spying someone’s mobile, several doubts arise, first if there are applications that really fulfill this function and the second, if spying on a mobile is legal.

Reformation swimsuit makes you feel like a pin-up model and a saint

Karin Kloosterman, the author, in her first and hopefully last bathing suit (for a long time). So it’s summertime again. That means swimwear. When was the last time you found the perfect bathing suit? On a trip to Rome maybe in 2010 when you found that perfect bikini? Ordering on the Internet or going to some bland and somewhat vulgar shop like Bikini Bay fills me with dread; I tried both at some point in my life. Then I stumbled upon Reformation and took the chance.

Modern and clutter-free: Is it really possible?

Green Prophet

For years, clutter seemed to follow us everywhere. However, over recent times more people have started to take action over it, and there are now all sorts of philosophies how to banish this bad habit from your home. It’s a topic that still prompts a lot of questions, though. A lot of people don’t believe the notion that you can live a clutter-free life, particularly if you are living in a family home.

Surpassing 300 Species in Costa Rica on Global Big Day, 2019

Global Big Day is an initiative created by the folks at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to promote the use of eBird and birding in general. A birder can participate in Global Big Day (GBD) by eBirding as much or as little as one feels like doing but why not just go all in and give yourself over to birding? Think about it. How many days of the year do we allow ourselves to do that? To bird until we drop? To put most of our focus on watching and identifying birds, all day long?
