This large 39″ x 27″ poster features a stunning 740+ species of native and introduced birds found in North America. They are drawn *somewhat* to scale and grouped by family. This poster would make the perfect gift for any bird lover.

Why Do Penguins Waddle?

The penguin’s unique gait sure is cute. But why do they do it?

A study by scientists was done in 2000 that examined the movement of penguins during their waddle and looked at how much energy is used by their locomotion.

Bird Banding in Zuma Canyon

Today brought the opportunity to participate in my first wild bird banding experience. My friend, Dinuk, was invited to help with the banding and was able to invite me along!

I woke up early at 5:30AM and headed over to Zuma Canyon next to Malibu, CA. It is important to get started as early as possible for any bird studies. Birds are very active in the morning when they are searching for water and food. The banding station was ran today from 7AM to noon.
