Hi, The Multilingual Birdsearch Engine
http://www.knutas.com/birdsearch/
I think I found a page where to translate the names of birds in different languages - sorry, there were no translation for Russian names in this search engine.

I love this site! thanks for finding it and posting, renandeli. I went backwards while there and discovered the site is owned by a photographer ~ no pictures of storks or eagles, though.

Would you post this link in the "How Do You Say? " thread? It would be very valuable there, I believe.
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=20
I found a gallery where there are pictures of all (about two-three are missing) 341 bird species of Estonia.
Avibase - Bird Checklists of the World Estonia
http://avibase.bsc-eoc.org/checklist.js ... mages&p2=4

Eagles and 'that kind', hawks etc.. are about on the page 3. Black stork is on the page 1. The names are in Latin and Estonian and in French, too. I didn't find a version with English names. :puzzled: It's funny there is a version with Finnish names but no english.. :shock: rare...

Somebody, Denis Lepage?, has collected the picture gallery for years: "This checklist includes all bird species found in Estonia , based on the best information available at this time. It is based on a wide variety of sources that I collated over many years. I am pleased to offer these checklists as a service to birdwatchers. If you find any error, please do not hesitate to report them. "

I don't know where to put this!

It is from Science Daily, reporting errors in counting bird populations. Other intersting links too.

Something just lovely! Navitrolla! Who is he?? The name is mentioned in a page of 'Estonian eagles'. Here
:http://www.kotkas.ee/ENG/friends.html
Navitrolla
is a famous artist who has often used the motif of nature in his works. As part of Navitrolla’s charity campaign “Half of the Take for Eagles”, postcards designed by the artist were sold and half of the profits were donated to the cause of eagle protection.

I don't know is there any campaign anymore, but here are some pictures of his works.

Navitrolla (birth name Heiki Trolla) is very well known and well-selling:) Estonian artist.
His working style is a bit like Mark-Kalev Kostabi's (word famous Estonian artist who is living and working in New York) - there are some people who help Navitrolla in painting process; but of course he signes all the paintings.
He's highly talanted, funny, nice guy - literally genius.
Plus keeps low profile despite of being genius:)

On the Bird Forum
http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=128877
a member in Ireland has posted a puzzling set of pictures of a starling with a very long beak. He is asking if anyone can suggest a cause for this strange sight - I was about to write "deformity" but how do I know that?

Any ideas, anyone?

There is a better view than I have posted, on the Bird Forum. My screen cap is small.

Jo, I have read about similar deformities in birds - I will try to find the info again. Sometimes these are genetic malfunctions and sometimes the result of trauma. There has been an increase in such deformities over the past decade or so, I think Alaska and British Columbia in Canada had high incidences of chickadees and other species with beak problems.

One theory is that such deformities are caused by environmental pollutants (perhaps when the bird was developing in the egg, perhaps ingested later). Some birds seem able to cope, but others (with a crossed bill, for example) have a harder time getting food and starve.

Thanks for your reply, Bo. I suppose that should have been in Health problems, but until I knew more about it, I didn't know what might cause that? If environmental pollutants are changing the structure of birds, what is it doing to us? Where is all this obesity coming from - OK - that's another topic!

Alô. I am new here. I am Portuguese. I love watching animals, especially birds. I love this site! Throughout the season I watched the black storks's nest. I love it. Now I watch the eagles winter webcams.
If you want to watch a camera at a Griffon vulture's nest on a cliff of Tagus river, in Portas de Ródão, Portugal, which have already started the rituals of mating, this is the link: http://static.publico.clix.pt/grifosnaWeb/default.aspx
Sorry but I do not know English and have to get help from Google translation :innocent:

Lnyx, welcome and thank you for the link to the vulture cam. Someone has been moving the cam and changing the view ~ very beautiful area (but no birds in sight at the moment).

Hi, do not hesitate to write in english! I am one of them who cannot english so good. I can make terrible mistakes, spelling, grammatical.. Me too use diccionaries - google is quite good. So I wish you will participate in discussions and feel free, and not to be scared of language mistakes!! Erros de linguagem, a pouca coisa!
