I copied all this from The Tawny Owl forum. When I posted the link I was just enamored of the Tawny pictures -- but it is a great resource for all kinds of species.

Something totally different but very interesting:

In the Oka Biosphere Reserve, two couples of Siberian cranes (Grus leucogeranus) from Yakutia, named Uchur, Samgym, Sergei and Banyl, are followed by four 24-hour cams - http://www.aif.ru/sterkh - from mid- or late April till fledglings learn to fly after a hang glider. This is part of a global project, Flight of Hope, to conserve the population of Siberian cranes. One couple has an egg already.

(The TV test pattern says 'Transmission will resume automatically'.)
