A Flight to Florida: and All That Came of it. A New Novel ... By Peregrinator.
Mark Twain once famously said "there was but one solitary thing about the past worth remembering, and that was the fact that it is past and can't be restored." Well, over recent years, The British Library, working with Microsoft has embarked on an ambitious programme to digitise its collection of 19th century books.
There are now 65,000 titles available (that's an incredible 25 million pages) of material ranging from works by famous names such as Dickens, Trollope and Hardy as well as many forgotten literary gems , all of which can now be printed on demand and purchased right here on Amazon.
Further information on The British Library and its digitisation programme can be found on The British Library website.
THE ULTIMATE FISHERMAN!........... One osprey was timed in flight going between 20 and 80 miles per hour!
Osprey - The Ultimate Fisherman The osprey has large talons that allow it to "fish" by diving down and gripping onto fish. Additionally, the skin of the osprey's feet is rough and prickly, helping the bird maintain its grip on a slippery fish. After catching a fish, the osprey returns to its perch to eat or feed its young. Occasionally an osprey will lock its talons in a fish that is too big for the bird to lift out of the water, but an osprey can usually lift up to a 4-pound fish out of water. The osprey, or sea eagle, is a large bird of prey that is commonly seen circling above lakes, rivers, streams and ponds, or perched on dead trees (also known as "snags") or telephone poles. It is almost the size of an eagle and is dark brown with a white head and a brown mask from the eyes down to the cheeks. It also has a white and brown breast and underside. The osprey, like other daytime hunting (diurnal) birds of prey has excellent vision. We've probably all used the term "eagle eye" to denote someone with keen vision. The osprey's vision is one of his most important senses for hunting and reacting to danger. Like humans, an osprey focuses on objects through binocular vision (using both eyes to see). Unlike birds that have one on each side of their head and use each in isolation, the osprey's eyes are facing forward. This enables him to have great depth perception as he hovers searching for prey. Ospreys have more sensory cells in their eyes and can see objects at a distance up to three times better than a human. They are also able to discern colors. This helps to discern prey, and aids in reproductive behavior. Although resident Florida ospreys do not migrate, their out-of-town family members migrate north in the spring from wintering grounds in South America, Mexico or the southern United States. During migration, one osprey was timed in flight going between 20 and 80 miles per hour! JUST A SIDE NOTE: This guy was sitting on the top of a huge sailboat mast...I could hardly see him, but thanks to that zoom....viola!...here he is for you to enjoy : ) What an amazing bird! There is another shot in the comment box...he decided to pose and give me his profile : )....and you can believe I was clicking fast to get this. Fishing is serious business to these guys so he was constantly looking around for the catch of the day even at that amazing height! What vision they have!
Florida Duck - Mottled
The Floridan population, which occurs approximately south of Tampa, is separated as the nominate subspecies Anas fulvigula fulvigula and is occasionally called the Florida Duck or Florida Mallard. by being somewhat lighter in color and less heavily marked; while both subspecies are intermediate between female Mallards and American Black Ducks, the Florida Mottled Duck is closer to the former and the Mottled Duck closer to the latter in appearance; this is mainly recognizable in the lighter head being quite clearly separated from the darker breast in Mottled, but much less so in Florida Mottled Ducks. As the subspecies' ranges do not overlap, these birds can only be confused with female Mallards and American Black Ducks however; particularly female American Black Ducks are often only reliably separable by their dark purple speculum from Mottled Ducks in the field.
