Male Quails produce "reproductive foam" [Sep. 26th, 2009|04:34 pm]

This is quite old research, but it was not known to me until earlier this week. The foam was demonstrated in vitro to both increase and prolong spermatozoal motility. While Turkeys also produce some foamed accessory fluid, the benefit of it seems to be unique to Japanese Quail.

Hello,

I wanted to share a great link with you today that I found on Flickr. KoriG is an amazing photographer and has taken some amazing bird shots, some with a great sense of humour including the Star Wars shots. Take a peek:

Scientists find penguin that disappeared 500 years ago [Nov. 20th, 2008|12:12 pm]

In this 2006 photo released Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2008 by the New Zealand Science Media Centre shown is a yellow-eyed penguin. Australian and New Zealand researchers studying one of the world's rare and endangered penguins have uncovered a previously unknown penguin species that disappeared about 500 years ago. The newly found 'Waitaha' penguin became extinct after Polynesian settlement of New Zealand but before A.D. 1500, researchers from Australia's University of Adelaide, New Zealand's University of Otago and Canterbury Museum, reported Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2008. The find came as the team was investigating changes in the endangered New Zealand yellow-eyed penguin population since human settlement of New Zealand around A.D. 1200-1300.

striped sunflower seeds and suet in the feeders [Nov. 10th, 2008|08:46 am]

I filled the feeders with sunflower seeds last week. All the chickadees, nuthatches and hairy woodpeckers immediately found them.

They like how I let the tree alonside the house grow up. They sit in it between flights to the feeder.

They also like the big Varigated Japanese Willow that has taken over the yard. It's a huge spot for them to retreat to.

I found the suet feeder the other day.

I bought a huge amount of beef kidney fat from a butcher shop for twenty cents a pound. I use it for making soap, but this is so handy to have it to fill the feeder.

Only I need a window to put it outside of.

I think I will climb up onto the loft and open that little window and put a nail in the top of the frame and hang it in front of that window. I only see white sky out of that window all winter. That woudl be foth good for me and good for the birds! I think I'll do that today!

I wonder why I don't get different birds, though.

Kaikoura (New Zealand) is home to a bird nesting site.
Lots of noisy seagulls about, and I took this video of some geese that walked past me while I was looking at the seals.
