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

Was reading an article on Macchu Pichu when this little fellow popped. A Saffron-crowned Tanager. Seems he lives on the eastern side of the Andes in the Amazon forrest, but shows up quite often in Macchu Pichu. Beautiful little bird.

This is my album "Flocking birds". Let's see if this works.

Sentient, that is an interesting bird, very handsome. Looking at videos and reading about them, they are a bird I hope I never have to defend myself. Also looked up other birds on that site and had a most interesting few minutes watching Cassowaries, secretary bird (Sagittarius serpentarius), and I understand Steph's interest in birds. These do look and act pre-historic. 

Booklover, these owls look so affectionate, I didn't realize they are social birds.

Wonderful posts of videos and pics of the Hoatzin. That is so very interesting. Appreciate it Sentient. And yes, they do remind you of the dinosaurs evolving into birds.

Many thanks.

google pics of Hoatzin. Maybe wishful thinking on my part - they remind me a bit of dinosaurs evolving into birds.
