More important, or at least connected to the photos below, is an Op-Ed from this morning's New York Times, Saving Canada's Boreal Forest, by Scott Weidensaul and Jeffrey V. Wells.
With the exception of the uncropped first photo, the next five are best viewed not too closely. As soon as you enlarge you will get the full pixilated version. Alas! I took about 50 shots of this charming bird this morning and these are probably the best.
