Birds in the News #92
The latest edition of Birds in the News (#92) has been posted over at Living the Scientific Life. It features a beautiful photo of a Snowy Owl.
This edition is a special – it’s a Hedwig the Owl edition. For the three or four people in the world who may be as ignorant as me on these matters, this is a reference to Harry Potter. I’m not into HP – in fact, I’m probably one of less than a dozen or so people left who do not like the HP books (yes – I did make the effort to read the first in the series – and I thought it quite second rate as a work of literature).
More importantly, this edition of Birds in the News has a link to a worrying article about the bird life around Chernobyl. All is not well with the birds living in or near the disaster zone. Surprise, surprise.
