I went to the UK as a Commonwealth Scholar in 1990 and received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 1993. After three decades of university teaching, I retired to devote my time to the study of raptor behaviour. I am particularly interested in Ospreys and am working on a long term project on third hatch survival and siblicide in these raptors. My blog is a result of a fascination with my local wildlife and the desire to encourage others to love and care for birds! I live on the Canadian Prairies and prior to the pandemic travelled a lot. I am questioning the use of aviation fuel at the moment as we all strive to help our planet. My early research was in politics and art including British public statues exported to Southeast Asia and Vietnam Resistors that contributed much to Canadian ceramics. Books and articles were published on those subjects over a period of 3 decades. Now I am working on books for children so they can learn about the challenges our raptors face.

Beautiful couple! I’ve added them to my watch list. Thanks Mary Ann!
Oh, great. I will be posting near to the time of the hatch. Watching those big birds feed those tiny chicks liquid squid is unbelievable. The chicks are so cute..they really touch your heart and mind.
they are such elegant birds 🙂
They are! And kind and caring. There is something special about all of the Albies.
