Del día 10 de Marzo del año 2018 cuando recorrimos los pastizales aledaños del Arroyo Mártires de la Ciudad de Posadas, cuando con Nico registramos al Junquero, comparto estas fotografías de un Cachilo canela que colaboró bastante con nosotros al permitirnos obtener lindas tomas de el. Aprovecho para publicar esta especie el día de hoy
It’s been a year since Baby Grey’s best friend Gracie passed away, but the cat still shows up for their scheduled playdates. Like clockwork, Baby Grey will wander into the yard and stand at the sliding door, seemingly hopeful that her friend will come running to meet her at the glass. There, she waits, sometimes
Two weeks ago, Chris and Katie Downs told their 6-year-old son Leo that they had to stop by a building to donate some supplies. Little did the young boy know that the seemingly routine errand would turn out to be one of the most memorable moments of his life. This wasn’t just any building —
This poor dog was bound up and left to die on cold a Missouri night. But thankfully, hope arrived just in time. And, with any luck, justice will follow suit. Ivan Animal Hospital The dog was found clinging to life this week by a sheriff’s deputy in Jefferson County. The deputy made the heartbreaking discovery
Now it’s easier than ever to help orphaned kittens — all over a cup of coffee. The Kitten Lounge, a new pop-up cat café and shelter in Washington, D.C., is hoping people will not only adopt a cat, but also help socialize adorable kittens who are looking for home, all while sipping coffee and relaxing.
Whilst birding the NADAC Farm area of Haradh recently I saw plenty of Harriers including a female Montagu’s Harriers in a pivot irrigation field. Male Montagu’s Harriers are easily identified by their upperwing pattern amongst other details but Juvenile and female Montagu’s and Pallid Harriers are difficult to identify with certainty and good views are
Well, chances are this hungry fella wasn’t expecting his breakfast would be to-go — or that he’d get carried right along with it. But that’s exactly what happened. On Wednesday morning, sheriff’s deputies in North Carolina received a call from a concerned motorist who’d spotted something unusual barreling down Highway 17 in Bertie County. It was a run-of-the-mill garbage truck,
Yesterday saw Anders and I again engaging in the noble art of Taiga Birding. With sun and little wind forecast plus seemingly everyone who enters into the area recently having to wade their way through flocks (up to 100 strong) of Pine Grosbeaks we had high hopes. We did have a great day in great
African grey Griffin in Dr. Irene Pepperberg’s cognitive behavior research lab In previous blogs I’ve talked about the importance of using “inference by exclusion” (inferring where something can be found after being given information about where it is absent) for examining nonhuman cognition. Many species succeed at the task at some level, but only a
Whilst in Lincs yesterday a couple of the local patch workers found a Fudge Duck on Holyfield Lake in Lea Valley country park but we couldn’t get back in time so had planned to look for it this morning. I set off on a solo run and despite thick fog managed to get on the
Call it a case of mistaken identity. And an adorable one, at that. Sanna Drogset Børstad On Tuesday, Norwegian journalist Sanna Drogset Børstad was handed a story assignment by her editors at the newspaper iTromso — one which, at first, seemed pretty mundane. An email had come in from a local man, named Jostein Hansen, who was
After 23 straight seasons featuring human heartthrobs, “The Bachelor” is long overdue for some furrier contestants. So when a sweet pit bull named Dude arrived at Front Street Animal Shelter in California looking for a family, his rescuers knew just how to get him the extra attention he needed to find him some love: They
Spent the weekend up in the Hula Valley with my wife, my brother and his wife. No kids. Good food, wine, spectacular scenery and a little bit of birding in between. In the Agamon, Barny is still present – patiently waited for my brother. A crane or two… Always a treat to be on a
This is Leo. Not only is Leo an adorably fluffy little Chihuahua — he also happens to have a natural sense for good manners. Sam Stine For example, the other night, when Leo’s human mom, Brookelyn Bilski, was chatting with her boyfriend Sam Stine over FaceTime, Leo was happy to lie there quietly next to her.
On the morning of the 27th of January, Eric Ole Reson was on his routine patrol on the Northern border of the Masai Mara when he spotted a group of vultures struggling to fly. Concerned, he hurried towards them, and stumbled across a tragic scene: 20 vultures lay dead around a hyena carcass, all of
Whilst birding at Jubail 11 January I found a single male Citrine Wagtail. The species is a regular though local winter visitor to the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia that was not seen until 1975. The species has become more common in the region recently (last ten years) and are almost always found near water
Whilst birding the Tabuk area in late January, we saw an immature Steppe Eagle showing the bird was wintering in the area. Steppe Eagle is a common passage migrant and uncommon wintering species in Saudi Arabia. There are two recognised subspecies of steppe eagle, Aquilanipalensis nipalensisand Aquilanipalensis orientalis,the latter being slightly smaller, with paler plumage.
Late last month, on a cold and snowy evening in central Canada, firefighters at the Steinbach Fire Department received a surprise visit from someone who seemed dead-set on getting their attention — and it’s easy to see why. Peering desperately through the station window was a freezing stray kitten. Steinbach Fire Department Fortunately, the very
Odin was rescued in October 2018 from a pair of breeders who had completely neglected to care for him and several other dogs. The poor dog had been chained up and ignored, and it showed. He was in absolutely horrendous condition when he was picked up by rescuers from Southern Pines Animal Shelter and Southern
When Kylina Turner first spotted Caro, she didn’t realize that the small bundle of fur was actually a dog. “I thought he was a stuffed animal,” Turner told The Dodo. “He was completely frozen still, staring at me. I figured I should check just in case, and as I walked up to him his ear
On this safari into Tadoba Tiger Reserve’s core zone, we reached the territory of the Tigress, popularly known as Choti Tara, in anticipation of another display by her cubs. While we patiently waited for the cubs to show up, a Oriental Honey Buzzard flew in and perched on a dead tree not far from us
Two months after heading off to college, student Ellie Haworth recently returned to her family’s home for a visit. That time away has been understandably tough, since it meant she’s been without the company of her beloved dog, Percy. “It was the longest we had spent apart,” Haworth told The Dodo. “I looked forward to
Whilst birding the Jubail area recently I came across four female Pied Kingfisher. This species is now becoming an uncommon winter visitor to the Jubail area with birds seen every winter for the last five years. The weather was very poor with overcast conditions so the photo is not the best but they are always
When the government closed, one team’s research into Canada Jays and climate change was put on hold. Now, they hope another shutdown isn’t around the corner. Photo: Jim Cumming/Alamy When Emily Williams heard the federal shutdown had ended, she picked up her phone and hoped it wasn’t too late to get her team’s research up
“To pet or not to pet?” That’s the dilemma facing the daily commuters at a train station in Israel pretty much every day, according to Dan Kashani, one such commuter, who finally decided he just had to film what regularly happens with a local cat known as Shawarma. Ever since the street cat was taken
Whilst at Jubail this winter I have seen good numbers of Greater Flamingo with numbers exceeding two-thousand birds. Occasionally the birds were close to the shore, whch is unusual at this location, allowing good views. I spent quite some time looking to see if I could locate any birds with plastic Darvic rings on them
Mandarin Duck starting to molt into eclipse plumage. Photo: Val Duncan/Kenebec Images/Alamy With so much dividing us as a country—whether corn syrup belongs in beer, which Fyre Festival documentary is more ethically compromised, probably other stuff—it’s comforting that we can all agree on one essential truth: New York City’s Mandarin Duck is one fine bird.
The actual players never stood a chance. This week, smack-dab in the middle of a youth soccer match in Turkey, a furry new challenger decided to join in on the fun. That adorable interrupter, a small white dog, then proceeded to seize possession of the ball — deftly dribbling it around the pitch like a
Bandipur National Park is almost home considering the fact that it is less than 4 hours drive from Bangalore. On this trip to Bandipur, our first couple of safari yielded a rich harvest of bird portraits. Here are a few birds that caught our attention. The common Bushchat looking right at us while it was
Atlantic Puffin. Photo: Jamie Dunning In puffin courtship, making a good impression is all about the beak. When one Atlantic Puffin approaches another, the two birds bow their heads and rub their candy-corn bills together while rapidly shaking their faces back and forth. Sometimes, a crowd of bobbing puffins will form around the pair, egging
