Cowart's Common Room
A Blog for you Faith

Here's a blog for you Faith: http://toughlittlebirds.com

I came across it when I googled 'What do birds do to keep dry in the rain?' (It is raining heavily here). I did ask this question on PC but I am not sure I got a good reply. Now it seems that this is an almost universal question - Google gets more questions on this topic and from all over the world, than any other. Not on 'How do I lead a good life?' or 'How do we stop international terrorism?' but 'how do birds keep dry in the rain?' Anyway the blog writer is a bird lover and doing research at UC Berkeley, California (where of course it never rains and they only have American birds and not European birds but they are all basically the same even if we don't have humming birds and they do). It is a really funny blog but also very erudite as you might expect from a PhD student at Berkeley. I am sure she would love to hear from you and your work on doves and pigeons. Do have a look at it and anybody else too if you have some time to kill but you won't get away from the blog easily, it is so fascinating. Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Faith's Avatar Fennie, I cut and pasted the details you gave - and yes interesting blogs on different topics but I couldnt find the one you meant. Maybe if you've got it ou could give us a proper link?

And I was all set to read too..... sitting here waiting for my hair colour to be done. If there is anything I hate it's colouring my hair, but I am not ready to go grey yet!

Re:
Fennie's Avatar I used to be a beautiful blonde until the age of 5 when I went mouse and have been mouse ever since. People sometimes ask if I dye my hair (most of which, thankfully, is still there). My Dad was only just beginning to go pepper and salt when he died at 82. Very Happy

Faith's Avatar What has your hair to do with the birds or have I missed somethingBlink I was white blonde til 5, like you, then streaky to 7, and then mouse as you say - but I do colour my hair.
