A golden bird came flying out of nowhere and alighted on her shoulder. Instantly, the princess’s hair began to shine, ablaze with brilliant red light.

Every evening Princess Rose, along with the.

In contrast the Buzzard is a more similar size to these species.
The first inhumation at Highgate Cemetery took place on the 26 th May, and was of Elizabeth Jackson, a 36 year old spinster of Golden Square in Soho. Perched on a hill above the smoke and filth of the city, Highgate Cemetery soon became a fashionable place for burials and was much admired and visited. The Victorian romantic attitude to death and its presentation led to the creation of a.

Ranthambore National Park is a wildlife haven, and we’ll head out in search of leopards, monkeys, birds and sloth bears on two game drives today.

RSPB Lakenheath Fen, just across the Suffolk border, is the only site where it possible to observe the UK’s tiny remnant population of golden orioles. Until recently two or three pairs bred each year in the reserve’s poplar plantations, though whether new birds will return each spring is a source of considerable consternation. A number of the reserve’s paths skirt the edges of the trees.
Wigeon glowed polished pewter in the sun, golden crowns bright over soft pink breasts. Shoveler and teal, sporting splendid breeding finery, and shiny tufted ducks, filled remaining spaces. No finer sight can exist in nature than vast numbers of ducks in late winter. Unless it is half a million starlings, perhaps.
A press tour in late March of 2019 afforded me the opportunity to explore Marble Falls and the Texas Hill Country. Enticed by the promise of golden-cheeked warblers and black-capped vireos, I packed a small suitcase, borrowed a book on Texas birds from Bird Watcher’s Digest’s robust library, and prepared for a long-overdue return to Atzlan.

Photo Essay: Birds of Cozumel, Mexico Royal Tern on the flagpole at the Iberostar pier head: Well, it was that time of year again, the middle of March - time to flee the frigid cold of southern Ontario and head south for the sun and heat of the tropics. This year Barb and I left the kids behind (their choice!) and spent the March Break (15th-22nd) in Cozumel, Mexico. This was our first visit.
In praise of high-contrast birds, purple bougainvillea thicketing the golden oriole. In praise of civic birds, vultures cleansing the valleys, hummingbird logos on the tails of propeller planes; in praise of adaptable birds, the herring gull that demonstrates its knowledge of how to use a box junction, and seems to want to cross the road.
