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

guiding migration pattern of whooping cranes reminds me a little of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues.  My mind works in strange ways.

I liked the Whooper video Lillie.  I teared-up while watching it just like I do in the movie "Fly Away Home", that I watch every year.

The Whoopers are safely in their winter home and were enthusiastically welcomed by a  friendly crowd of mostly dedicated birdwatchers.  Here is a video of their happy arrival:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrPI9UV-y1U&feature=youtu.be

My Thanksgiving was just perfect, even as we missed my son and his family who live in Littleton, CO and my granddaughter and her family with all five adorable great-grand children who were with another set of grandparents! 
We had a nice full table of family, the turkey tuned out to be a perfectly deep brown and all the fixin's tasted yummy. We had great conversation, including all the forbidden topics. Just the kind of gathering I like around me. Everyone pitched in and made the day perfect. I like help in the kitchen and each one in the family knows how to help and not get in each other's way. My tiny little kitchen has served many a meal over the years.

Melinda, I am sorry I could not remember that you led us to that delightful photo of thanksgiving bird and cat! I laugh every time I think about it. Thanksgiving morning with the Turkey squabble just a couple of blocks from my home made us all laugh. Those creatures have become truly pets. 

Steph, thanks for the assist. 
Lillie, your story of the whooping cranes following their light weight flying machine master gives me goose bumps. Imagine the thrill is seeing that flight through. I hope there will be follow-up stories on this particular flock. 

Tony, your photos of birds and their diverse plumage reassures me of the great powers of evolutionary forces.

I went birding this morning - not shopping with the crazies.

I love the Puffbird Tony.

Thank you.
