@ANice24675304 So what You’re saying is, you would rather see all who have done those evil acts you listed be ‘Unforgiven’? Which I then would have made them not sing (flip on all other evil in the world) & continue Making everyone’s lives hell even worse than what everyone’s gone through?
@ANice24675304 You too would choose & Accept being ‘Unforgiven’ for what you have done in your life?

“When bad does good”?
How/#WHY do you think MANY evil beings chose to do good for humanity?
Just because you Don’t see it or hear about it, does not mean it hasn’t happened. ImageImageImageImage
@ANice24675304 Show me someone innocent in this world …



Where does that question come from?

- A Heart of Flesh ?

Here is a list of 45 #birds, 22 #mammals, and 30 non-avian #reptiles that are CRITICALLY ENDANGERED due to feral or pet #cats
#invasivespecies #conservation #ornithology #BiodiversityCrisis
pnas.org/doi/pdf/10.107… Image
first off, I'd like to highlight that "feral #cats on islands are responsible for at least 14% global #bird, #mammal, and reptile extinctions and are the principal threat to almost 8% of critically endangered birds, mammals, and reptiles"
onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.11…
AND within our own lifetimes, North America has lost more than one in four of its birds. These are not all critically endangered now, but these trends are pointing to #extinction

As an aspiring #Artist , I love to Paint/Sketch my own perspective & observations of things that inspires me. I've been doing this for a decade & would love to share it on this platform.

Hence, I am starting this thread where I'll add my couple of #artwork everyday. Let's go...

Honoured to share that @IngridOlivaresa and I have started a beautiful project with the @TaironaTrust and the #Kogi Indigenous People of #Colombia to #restore degraded lands and revive #water in the #SierraNevadadeSantaMarta Thread 👇 (1/11) Image
The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a @UNESCO biosphere reserve since 1979. It has the world’s highest coastal peak (5730m) and all the climatic zones of tropical America: from mangroves to glaciers. Image
Biologically, the Sierra has > 3,000 species of vascular #plants, 120 #mammals (including jaguars, pumas, and tapirs), and 628 #bird species. Many species are only found there, such as the Santa Marta Parakeet. Image

Our paper (with @LeaGrie) on the functions of #bird #odour is out in Biological Reviews doi.org/10.1111/brv.12…

Preen oil is produced by the uropygial gland and birds use it to maintain and waterproof their plumage. But could it have other functions? 🤔 [2/14]
Over the past 20 years, researchers have explored whether preen oil plays a role in chemical defence & communication. Despite this growth in research, many functions of preen oil remain poorly understood 🧐 [3/14]

For the return of the #UNMBioblog after our year hiatus, I chose to write about the negative consequences for cats, humans, and #wildlife when we allow #cats to roam freely. I couldn't help myself with the punny title.
unm-bioblog.blogspot.com/2021/09/catast…
I was inspired to write this blog after I witnessed my neighbor's outdoor pet #cat killed a #bird under my feeder. A heated argument ensued. I know nothing has changed because I still scare him out of my backyard. I've counted 9 different cats in my backyard, here is one
I am a paradoxical #catlover, which stems from my #science & #ornithology career. I know how cute it is for my own #cat to frolic in flowers but I understand how dangerous it is for #cats, human #health, & #wildlife when cats roam #CatsOfTwitter #Caturday #catsofinstagram

Asian Barred owlet #Thread

I have photographed (shared earlier here) a pair of Asian barred owlet earlier last month which I found in the backyard of my home in Assam in my recent visit in April.

#IndiAves #birds #birdwatching #BirdsSeenIn2021 #TwitterNatureCommunity Image
Today, my bother called me in the morning and told me that he found a chick at the bottom of a tree with a large hole. I ID the bird and he managed a bamboo 🪜 to place the chick in the hole. He noticed 2 more chicks there.

#IndiAves #BirdsSeenIn2021 #birdwatching ImageImage
While doing so he was attacked by one the parents. The hole was little wide at its mouth so we concluded that the chick came out of its own while crawling inside the hole.

Took a wet walk through some first class WOOD PASTURE on the shore of #ullswater this morning. Here's a thread to explain why it's such a fantastic habitat, and why we need more of it. Image
On the face of it, wood pasture is just a field with trees in it, but it's so much more than this. When well managed, with the right level of grazing, wood pasture is one of the richest habitats we have. In fact, it's more than just one, it's a habitat mosaic. Image
One of the most prominent features of a wood pasture, is big, old #trees. This one has lots of oak, ash, birch, holly, sycamore, hawthorn and alder, many with abundant rot holes, perfect for pied flycatchers, restarts and other hole nesting #bird species. Image

My hair's getting long, but not long enough to tie into a ponytail, which is my intention in this time when we avoid barbers. You can see how long my hair has become in the selfie I posted today. In it I sit at my desk...
...working on my laptop, my immense desk towering over me and clutter filling the space that is not filled by electronics. I chose black and white for this composition as I do for all my best selfies. It's unique because...
...I show myself from the back, a trick I mastered by resorting to the ten second timer in one of my cameras. I don't know how I feel about this photo -- perhaps you have something to say. I'd be very interested.

Two tweets summarizing @veteranstoday articles that blamed Israel for nuking a ME country. On the left a Jan 2019 tweet on Yemen that got 1.6K retweets & 1.1K likes & practically NO #Ziotrolls. On the right a tweet on Beirut from Aug 2020 with TONS of Ziotrolls. Was it the #bird? ImageImage
For those interested in the actual tweets, here's the Jan 2019 thread on Yemen.
And here's the Aug 2020 thread on Beirut.

I slept for fourteen or fifteen hours today after sleeping six the night before. Sleep is one of the most important things when you live with #bipolardisorder -- too much and you sink into a depression. Too little and...
...you are the obnoxious life of the party. So my body fought off the mania by blasting me with an excessive night stupor. It made it hard to engage for very long with people on my online bipolar support group. Perhaps it was for the best given that I was such dismal company.

Hey #YYJ #Victoria #Tree #Arborist peeps - can anyone id this conifer for me? It's in my neighbouring yard - home to generations of birdies: chickadees, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, wrens.. and it's about to be demolished for new condo; and I'm heartbroken.
The new @CityOfVictoria #TreePreservation Bylaw calls for a fee of $2000/tree to fund the planting of a replacement tree elsewhere. (But has no provisions that I know of for wildlife protection)

The new condo being built by @ARYZE_devcon will be home to 6 'boutique' units; which will do nothing to improve the affordable housing shortage in #YYJ

A thread to cover some of the major - and I mean seriously, shockingly major - gaps, mistakes and problems with the #environmental impact assessment for Montijo airport in #Portugal.

First up: no #fieldwork. AT ALL. 1/
That's right – the EIA of a major international #airport proposed for the country’s most important #wetland site for #bird #conservation didn’t bother to actually count any #birds.

Instead, they depended on studies already published for other reasons.

How did that work out? 2/
Well, the data on birds feeding in the #intertidal- the largest and most important #habitat in the #SPA- was collected in 2002-3.

In the 17 years since, the #Tagus has changed a lot for birds. Improved #water treatment but drastic increase in #shellfish harvesting. 3/

Witnessed history being projected! On Saturday, 8th February, India’s prominent artist #nalinimalani created an installation on the facade of the #TajPalaceHotel in #Mumbai It had more than 50 animations and floating images, perfectly wrapped around the hotel ImageImageImageImage
People stopped on the extremely busy #Gatewayofindia to hunt for the ‘#Koel’ (large Indian #cuckoos) as the sound of the #bird emitted from the #video Nalini Malani has an entire series called’Can you hear me?’ on @instagram on her profile
Sanjeet had already looked it up so when we were talking to the artist, she explained more to us.This hotel was the same place that had faced horrific #terroristattack in 2009.Today it represents a more peaceful #memory in the lives of the Mumbai lovers ImageImageImage
