RSPB Scotland wildlife charity backing Scottish beaver projects - stv.tv | CSPB Ornithologist's Alliance. | Scoop.it

A leading wildlife conservation charity is backing the reintroduction of beavers to Scotland.

RSPB Scotland has urged the Scottish Government to pave the way for future releases following the conclusion of the Scottish Beaver Trial.

Ministers are due to determine the fate of beavers in Scotland by May 2015.

They will decide whether to allow further licensed reintroductions, allow present beavers to remain but not allow further reintroductions, or exterminate all beavers in Scotland.

The Australian Cassowary! » Fascinating Pics.

The Australian Cassowary! » Fascinating Pics. | CSPB Ornithologist's Alliance. | Scoop.it
The Australian Cassowary!I am in Australia, looking for one of the strangest birds in the world. Along with the emu and ostrich, cassowaries are amongst the largest flightless birds in the world, and can grow up to 63 inches (1.60 metres) tall, weighing 132 pounds (60 kilogrammes)!
Cassowaries originally only lived in the jungle, but since roads and houses have also been built in Northern Australia, they have been forced to share their habitat with humans. They can kick extremely hard and their feet have long, sharp nails with which they can rip you open. They are also extremely territorial and when another bird gets too close to their fruit tree, they will attack. Then I see one coming out of the bushes. He is clearly looking for food. Cassowaries mainly eat fruit, but also frogs, lizards and even large spiders.The lowest pitched soundsI see the beautiful blue colour of his neck, and the bizarre large casque on his head. They use the casque to receive low, vibrating tones from other members of their species. Of all birds, cassowaries make the lowest pitched sounds. Humans cannot even hear them. The casque houses air chambers with which the bird is able to receive these low vibrations. The casque also serves as protection from falling fruit, and for when they run into a fruit tree.
He looks at me and proceeds slowly in my direction. When this happens, it is best to remain still without looking at him. Running away won’t help, because they can easily run at speeds of 30 miles per hour (fifty kilometres per hour). He is curious and comes to within a few metres from me. He looks at me and I carefully take a picture. He walks away again. Wow, what an incredible bird!

Bird Watching in Alta Floresta - Cristalino Jungle Lodge | Brazil Nature Tours.

For the love of animals. Pass it on.

 

Are you looking for bird watching ecotourism packages? Brazil Nature Tours can personalize a vacation package in Alta Floresta just for you.

 

ITINERARY:

Alta Floresta is considered by many ornithologists as one of the most diverse destinations for bird watching in the entire Amazon. With a bird list of 570+ species and new species found every year, the region of Alta Floresta and Cristalino River Basin have been visited by leading ornithologists and birders from all over the world. First visited by Ted Parker and Mort and Phyllis Isler in 1989, the region has attracted the visits of Dr. Yürgen Haffer, Dr. Robert Ridgley, Guy Tudor, Dr. Kevin Zimmer, and Bret Whitney to mention a few.

Due to the barrier effect of rivers like the Madera, Xingu and Teles Pires which inhibit the dispersion of some species, the Cristalino Reserve has a high incidence of endemism. Differing soil types from the drainages of the " White water" Rio Teles Pires and the "Black water" Rio Cristalino enhance the overall diversity of flora and fauna. Clients can choose from a set of trails with different habitats, go by boat on the river in search of Red-throated Piping Guan, Razor-billed and Bare-faced Curassow or they can relax in the Lodge clearing where many species of toucan, macaw, parrots, cotinga, barbet, trogon, and other frugivores visit the Cecropia trees for their tasty fruit.

In addition to the Cristalino Lodge, the Hotel Floresta Amazonica, which is located in a 100 acre fragment of primary forest in the center of the city of Alta Floresta, has unique attractions not to be missed. Visitors often spend a night at the Hotel upon arrival and before departure home. Endemics such as Crimson-bellied Parakeet, Black-girdled Barbet and Cryptic Forest Falcon as well as rarities such as Rufous-necked and Collared Puffbird are all found within 5 minutes walk of the breakfast buffet.
