Another gift from Angelica. It just takes my breath away to realize the great diversity that comes about by natural selection. No need for the god hypothesis.   Continue

New York and seven other states are suing the Trump administration for allegedly gutting longstanding protections for migratory birds under the 100-year-old federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

The lawsuit stems from a legal opinion issued by the Department of Interior last year that prohibits energy companies and other businesses from being criminally prosecuted if they accidentally kill migratory birds.

The suit calls the opinion "arbitrary and capricious and contrary to the law" and is asking the court to vacate it.

Joining the lawsuit are California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico and Oregon.

Even a parrot seems to be reaching out to touch natural things and when none is available, a faux nature will have to do. Poor thing! Using a faux tree, surrounded by faux vines, he seems to look, in anthropomorphic terms, like a jungle parrot lost in a wasteland.

Interesting migration map.  It took a long time to find the #81 hummingbird migration but I finally did.  They should make the numbers a lot smaller.

I was unable to post this on Hang with Friends. 

Mesmerizing Migration: Watch 118 Bird Species Migrate Across A Map ...

Fascinating image of migratory birds in both North and South America. 

"For the first time, scientists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology have documented migratory movements of bird populations spanning the entire year for 118 species throughout the Western Hemisphere. The study finds broad similarity in the routes used by specific groups of species—vividly demonstrated by animated maps showing patterns of movement across the annual cycle."

I expect Birdie Sanders will grow up to be a powerful speaker who doesn't put up with greed or other such nonsense. Suppose we can clone him?

Birdie Sanders has the hair exactly right!
