The Passenger Pigeon
34,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This stunningly illustrated book tells the astonishing story of North America's Passenger Pigeon, a bird species that--like the Tyrannosaur, the Mammoth, and the Dodo--has become one of the great icons of extinction. Errol Fuller describes how these fast, agile, and handsomely plumaged birds were immortalized by the ornithologist and painter John James Audubon, and captured the imagination of writers such as James Fenimore Cooper, Henry David Thoreau, and Mark Twain. He shows how widespread deforestation, the demand for cheap and plentiful pigeon meat, and the indiscriminate killing of Passenger Pigeons for sport led to their catastrophic decline.

Yariguies Brush-Finch

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Yariguies Brush-finch (Atlapetes latinuchus yariguierum) is a subspecies of the Yellow-breasted Brush-finch, discovered in 2004 in Colombia. The feathers of the breast, abdomen, and throat are yellow, those of the coverts, primaries, secondaries, scapulars, auriculars, lores, and tail are black, the crown feathers are russet. It is unique among its conspecifics because it has a jet black back and wing with no white markings. One of the type specimens was photographed and a DNA sample taken, and subsequently the bird was released as researchers wanted to confirm that the new taxon is not endangered before killing a number individuals as type material. Its habitat is the remote cloud rainforest in the northern Colombia. The pristine area where the birds live is one of the last remaining such Andean cloud forests in the country.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A skua is a seabird of the family Stercorariidae. The three smaller skuas are called jaegers in North America. The name skua comes from Faroese skúgvur but this word only applies to the species Stercorarius skua, and the island of Skúvoy is renowned for its colony of that bird. The generic Faroese term for a skua is kjógvi. Jaeger is derived from the German word Jäger, meaning hunter. Skuas nest on the ground in temperate and Arctic regions and are long-distance migrants. They have even been sighted at the South Pole. Outside the breeding season, skuas take fish, offal and carrion. Many are partial kleptoparasites (comprising up to 95% of the feeding methods of wintering birds), chasing gulls, terns and other seabirds to steal their catches, regardless of the size of the species attacked (up to 3 times heavier than the attacking skua). The larger species, such as Great Skua also regularly kill and eat adult birds, such as puffins and gulls, and have been recorded as killing birds of the size of a Grey Heron. On the breeding grounds they commonly eat lemmings, and the eggs and young of other birds.
