EDITORíS NOTE
Big Changes Ahead for Birding Wire

We’re not going to give everything away before the fact, but you can expect significant changes to The Birding Wire in the very near future. Next week, in fact. We’ve been working behind the scenes to bring you more news, information and educational material and we’ll be rolling the initial improvements and further details out next week. Just wanted you to know ahead of time.


ADVENTURE OPPORTUNITIES
Airboat Goose Capture and Banding in the Northern Utah Marshes

It’s an experience unlike any other: You’re lying on your stomach, stretched off the front end of an airboat that’s zipping across the water. The driver slows down, approaching a group of wary geese, and it’s time! 


EDUCATION
Think Like a Bird: Understanding Bird Behavior

We developed this course to help you think like a bird. It is designed to transform your birdwatching experiences by giving you all the tools you need to understand why your favorite birds act the way they do, no matter where in the world you go.


ODDITIES
Itís A Bird, Itís A FishÖ.Itís AÖ

After Guizhou, South-West China fishermen pulled this strange looking fish the other day, there has been no shortage of speculation as to, well, what it was. Bird? Fish? Bird/Fish?

Michigan Operation Freedom Outdoors Bird Hike at Belle Isle Park

Join the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Michigan Operation Freedom Outdoors this Friday, June 15 from 9 to 11 a.m. for a morning of birding in both wetland and forested habitats in Detroit’s Belle Isle Park.


TRAVEL
The Unmarred, Unknown Trails of Carson Valley, Nevada

Carson Valley, home to Nevada’s first settlement, beckons you to check-out after a full day of dropping-in. The four communities of Carson Valley are a sweet balance of convenience (just 45 minutes south of Reno International Airport) and unhampered. There’s no attitude here, just a welcoming dose of character and love for the landscape.

Birds of a feather stick together. Well what about birds and a Siberian Husky sticking together? As seen daily in the back  yard of Murray Martin in  Whitehorse, Yukon Territory Canada every day as food  is put out for the Ravens. If Avalanche is  in the way,  ravens just pecks her tail to move her.
