The Effects of Grease on Water Quality

Hug a Tree with Me

Healthy water quality is an obvious importance for our eco-system; all living things need water to survive and to maintain health and longevity. When our water is corrupted then chaos can ensue on the animals and plants and the other living things that depend on clean water to live.

The Hummingbirds of Western Montana

10,000 Birds

Are invisible. I mean, I know they’re out there. The Montana Field Guide, a helpful online compendium provided by the state government, lists seven species. Three of those — the Black-chinned , Calliope , and Rufous Hummingbirds — breed in the Missoula area. That is, in extremely precise mathematical terms, three times more species of hummingbirds than breed near the Olde Homestead. But my mom sees hummingbirds at her feeder constantly, and here my feeder sits, all forlorn.

Bubble-gum Pink Legs

10,000 Birds

Bubble-gum pink legs. That’s how the limbs of the Black-necked Stilt, Himantopus mexicanus, were first described to me, and that’s what I’m going with for 10,000 Birds Pink Bird Weekend (or, as I call it, Think Pink Week). Sibley describes them as “extraordinarily long red legs”. Pete Dunne calls them “coral red”. Stokes and the National Geographic Field Guides go with simply “pink legs”; Kaufman likes coral too, only with pink, as in “coral-pink legs”.

Well, that brings a new meaning to the phrase “ the eagle has landed.” ” In the case of two Bald Eagles at the Duluth International Airport in Minnesota, the landing was of the not-so-smooth variety. The birds had locked their talons during a mid-air battle and plummeted to the tarmac together. When they hit the ground, both were alive, but unable to separate themselves. Fortunately, a quick-thinking airport employee called the state’s Department of Natural Resources.

The Bill of the Flamingo

10,000 Birds

The bill of the Greater Flamingo is a marvel of nature that would make any baleen whale turn pale with envy. Indeed, they are the avian equivalent to baleen whales, feeding exclusively on brine shrimp and blue-green algae using their highly specialized bills as filter devices. The long legs and neck allow them to feed near the ground in relatively deep water or near the water surface, depending on where the largest concentration of food is found.
