This video shows a man crossing paths with a wild Canada goose that appears to be lost. It looks like this particular goose trusted the man enough to follow the car he was driving so that the man could lead it to a nearby lake, a place where the bird would certainly prefer to hang out, I would think. Check out:
That goose reminded of two things.
The first is one of my favorite documentaries. Winged Migration. It's an amazing documentary. The filming required over 400 people and took over 4 years. It's just beautiful. You can probably get it at the public library. Check out the "making of" section.
Could not view the video. Probably one of those International thingies.
But this is my favorite David Attenborough moment.
From 1:40 to 2:20. Could not find it any stand-alone moment. but obviously it a lot of other people's favorite moment.
I actually had both cable and a VCR when this came out and recorded and watched every episode. But it was so many hours I ended up recording over the old ones to record the new ones. Probably a good move on my part back then cause now you can just take the DVDs out of the library or watch it online or get one of the new shows.
This video is mentioned in Peter Wohlleben's book The Inner Life of Animals. It shows a bird that looks like a crow using a plastic lid to go snowboarding down a metal rooftop. It looks like the bird is doing this just for fun of it.
Lesley says in one of her videos that crows and ravens actually aren't black, when sun shines on their feathers, those glow with shades of purple, green and blue. That's right... I have a bird colouring book (Birdtopia, A Colouring Book by Daisy Fletcher) and as I was searching for refereces, while colouring the Corvus Corax, I was amazed how colourful the bird is in closer look.
The other day my son and I watched a documentary on Amazon about hummingbirds. I think it is simply called "Hummingbirds" and it is narrated by David Attenborough. It was really interesting, and inspired me to get some more flowering hanging baskets to make sure the hummingbirds that visit our property have plenty of food.
