Bernie Krause's TED talk: The voice of the natural world

I became aware of Bernie Krause's TED talk when a birding listserve member posted the link to that list.  Bernie Krause's talk is about 15 minutes long and I can't do it justice with words in this blog entry.  All I can say is listen for yourself.  Depending on the speed of your connection/computer - do give it time to load.

Rescued baby hummingbird

Armchair birding continues as I gimp along with my repaired quadriceps tendon.

A friend from work showed me this video which her friend sent to her via Facebook. The Facebook link did not work when copied into email. Another birder found the You Tube link posted by kandwarf.

The video quality is not great, but the video content is very nice.  If you are an individual with zero tolerance for sweet, touchy-feely things, I do not recommend watching.

For everyone else:  You will be charmed.
