Oh after registration about 1 week ago I selected a pic of myself as avatar pic, then I noticed that all of you selected a pic of an animal (mostly birds) and I wanted to change my pic. But then after I only had time for my daily work - included my addicted watching of our family and reading this forum, of course
And now I noticed that I posted my comment without changing my pic
I will change soon
Welcome here Cara!
Please don´t change your picture just because most of the members have bird pictures in avatars. I think putting your own pic tells much about your brave personality and attitude. And I´ve seen also a few others here with their own pictures.
I also share your worries about the migration, many of the birds are shoot on their way to the South, it´s very tragic. I wish you pleasant times here in the forum!
I agree, Cara, don't change your avatar on our account, you have such pretty plumage anyway!
I think the best thing about this osprey cam is that it puts a face (and wings) on the creatures who are so impacted by human affairs - pollution, habitat loss, climate change and sheer carelessness. I've only been watching here for a couple months but I've sent numerous emails with the link to other people, so they will see the beauty, grace and humility of these small creatures that only want to survive.
And the guys who climbed up the tree to set the nest and camera, then climbed up again to ring the chicks - they are heroes! And all the people who support them and even we who watch at home on our computers, expanding the message that we humans are not just spoiling our earth, we're spoiling it for every living thing and we have to work to change that.
How boring life would be without so many creatures of the air, land and sea, so beautifully going about the business of living - it would be a great tragedy to lose any of them, and it is a tragedy that we have already lost some, forever.
Okay you get the picture, I'm done preaching for the night.
Hi Urmas! Great work so far! Thank you!
