Anh143 welcome to the group!

AWESOME! Absolutely beautiful! How can we be so hard on Earth when she gives us so much? 

Perhaps the tide has turned with all the weather changes, loss of ice, rising sea levels, social structures stretched to the maximum, perhaps we will begin to focus on what is healthy when in opposition to what is profitable. 

Thanks Tony and to each one of you who share such beauty with us.

Gorgeous bird.

Hi Joan - yes I was thinking of posting that article in a discussion, as I saw that one too. 

I will look into that question you asked me. I am sure there is research on it.

Thanks for the article about recycling butts into nests.

Hope everyone is doing good today.
