The rare orange bellied parrot (by Marion Chapman)

Following the wonderful BBC series, Life, focusing last night (note: this posting was made Tuesday 10th November, not as dated above) on Birds, it is good to both praise the programme makers for their inspirational documentaries, and at the same time remind readers about the risk that turbines cause to birds.

As well as looking at Marion Chapman's pages featuring the Bald Hills Wetland Reserve (home of the rare orange bellied parrot) and the Barrier Ranges, we recommend that you go to EPAW (the European Platform Against Windfarms) for a dramatic video of a vulture struck by a wind turbine.

And finally a bird lovers blog that we like to recommend is Jupiter Birding.
