Thread subject: Mating Already

Anne 12/11/05 07:14 am It is a beautiful day here in the UK, clear blue skies and a warm 50F. Our winters are getting warmer every year thanks to global warming (but if that causes the Gulf Stream to fail we are going to have winters like Labrador in the future - too depressing a thought so near Christmas so lets not go there).

Anyway, songbirds are singing in my garden and this morning I have been watching a pair of Hedge Accentors (small finch-like birds) mating very enthusiasticly, with a third bird trying to get in on the action. I hope they dont suceed in laying eggs as I am sure the weather will get colder soon.
Marie 12/11/05 12:45 pm Sounds like LOTUS LAND shifted to another location. Here the foggy blanket hovers over the water not sure whether to stay out among the Islands or to move in land to make it all grey, damp and rather dull. It is nice to know someone else has a beautiful day somewhere in the world and they can watch birds having FUN. ;-)
I am off to join friends at the Salmon spawning run along one of our rivers just outside Victoria. It will be damp in the old growth forest that is for sure today. Still one never knows, maybe the sun will shine later.
Hopefully I won't be overcome by the STENCH of rotting salmon. Sometimes hundreds of eagles and gulls congregate at the estuary of the river. The Nature house has an underwater camera to watch the salmon swim and spawn. An over head camera watches the Eagles fight among themselves while sneaking fish from one another. Too bad they generally stay out in the estuary which is secured from the general public. Occasionally the eagles sit fairly close to the Nature House. It can be a lot of fun on a sunny day.
Anne 12/11/05 04:11 pm I have seen film of the Pacific salmon spawning. As well as eagles, dont bears join in to feast on the fish too? What kind of bears would they be?
