Random Gleanings from the BirdSphere #40

Introduction: A daily (or as often as I can find time to compile it) feature that highlights recent entries from North American bird blogs listed in my blogroll; also see here.

Today’s Featured Bird Blog:
Remembering New Jersey – “A doctor-birder remembers New Jersey and other scenic landfills,” by Ken (online since September 2006)
Today’s Featured Bird Blog Entry (excerpt):
New Boss Duck but No Babies

Early this March, a group of four Black Vultures congregated on our next door neighbor’s lawn, at the shore of our lake. They were tearing apart the dead body of a Muscovy Duck. Later in the day I took a look at the carcass, now little more than a bunch of feathers and cleanly picked bones. I did not think much of it until a few days later, when I noticed that tough old “Pato El Presidente,” the alpha drake who ruled our section of the lake’s shore, was missing. See previous blog entry about him here.
