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

Thanks, George.  Lovely--the flamingos and the music.

George thanks for the songs! And yes I did like Hitchcock's movie "the Birds".

Lillie what a wonderful Puffin experience. I would love to do something like that!

Another wonderful experience I had off the coast of Grand Manan Island was with an Elderhostel birding group .  I had always said I could never die happy until I had seen the Puffins.  I signed on for this trip because you were guaranteed to see them.  We boated to one of the Puffin Islands and then transferred to canoes.  We paddled out among the Puffins and were very, very quiet.  They came right up to out canoes.  It was breathtaking.  I will never get over it as long as I live.  And now I can die happy.
