Siegel_Long Form_Miles To Go

Here is a Vimeo version of my entry. I don't know if the quality is much better than the UWOL version, but at least it's fast.

omigosh, total flashback...my mom had "A Field Guide to the Birds" and I did the same exact thing, sitting with the book for hours, looking at all the species. must be a formative UWOL-ish experience (well, for Americans over forty, anyway!). I had forgotten all about my childhood experiences with that book...

Yeah, those old field guides were different. Less business-like. The authors actually put something of themselves into the text. You could actually read them.

Steve,


wow, what a wonderful collection of bird footage!!!

I was most impressed with the coopers hawk and peregrine footage. Accippiters are so reclusive getting them is tuff. I reckon finding a nest sight would be the best way to get that kind of footage. In the charolettes and alutians puffins arer a primary food base for peregrines.

Well organized and nicely put together!! I do not really have any criticisms!!


Great Job!!

Hi Dale,
Thanks for the comments. We have had over the last few years, an influx of Cooper's Hawks in Miami during all seasons. I think the pervasive, tasty and oh so easy to catch Eurasian Collared Doves are behind it. One of our favorite local birding sites has reliable Cooper's most of the time. I just played a tape and he (she?) came right over. If only Sharpies were so cooperative. I can always tell when a Coop is in my neighborhood, because my feeder stays full of seed for days.
