Pheasants havbe been living in the wild for so long that they must be considered "native".
I want to go to the Hawk Conservancy, not far from here, to see a Great Bustard. They are being re-introduced on Salisbury Plain (near Stonehenge) which was once their native habitat.
Waiting for longer days to come round!

Interesting video, Jo. I hope the project continues to go well. The bird is very handsome-- but-- I can't help it, the name just sounds funny to me. :whistling:

I have to admit, when I listened to the people on the video, to my American ears, it sounded like the vowel had been changed! :D

Thanks for the rook film, Carmel.
You are right about the raven topic. We used to have a raven camera. The topic has been archived for a while now.

I am not really surprised. :nod: Birds and animals have been long considered as unintelligent and unimaginitive.(that a word ? Collins says yes).Non-emotive too.

It is easier for humans (who often exploit animals) to think of them as lacking intelligence or emotion. Now we know, from several studies - and from watching webcams! - that that is an erroneous belief.

I read the article that Jo posted - it is interesting and shows that the jays are sharing information - but does it mean they "mourn"? I am not sure.
