Recent Videos on Birds and Birding

Hey Everybody!

It's been a while since I've posted, but I have a lot in the works. I'll be posting on things like pigmentation in birds and how global climate change is spreading malaria to places where it's never been before. I might even post a little more about birds and'll just have to wait and see! For now though, there have been two fantastic videos about birds or birding that have come out recently, so I thought I'd embed and share them here. Check it out!

A Passion for Birds from The Field Museum on Vimeo.

An awesome video made by the Field Museum on Vimeo featuring such respected birders as naturalist Kenn Kaufman, the author of his own Field Guide series, his wife Kimberly, director of the Black Swamp Bird Observatory, John Fitzpatrick, director of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (and the scientist after which a recently discovered new species, Sira Barbet--Capito fitzpatricki--is named after), Shannon Hacket curator of the Bird Division at the Field Museum, and more. It's a video explaining a passion for birds that links together all of them.

Watch An Original DUCKumentary on PBS. See more from Nature.

A recent PBS Nature documentary all about ducks. It contains some amazing footage and behavioral notes about this fascinating and ancient group of animals.
