First time I saw this was in the Bodega Bay area with my Symbas friends and Robert or Raspberry? In any case, we lay in a gully for what seemed like hours watching the blackbirds (?) move, wave, form, disperse, flow, dissolve...it was mystical. (I think what they did is called murmuration)

Hippo: Kills the most people in Africa. Naturally territorial and temperamental, they can move on land quite quickly, & can open that mouth 90 degrees with 10 inch teeth. You don't have an idea of scale because no one stands by a hippo, but they can be 15 feet long (take 6 to 7 steps: that's how big they are).

'Creatures who fly through the air sit on top of us... I said, "My, my. Other people's problems do get tedious by and by. My, my. You can never solve them all, no matter how hard you try." I came back as a large hippopotamus' -Al Stewart
Hippo and friends... Katie used to watch a show about a little girl and animals and they called these birds "tick tick birds"

Tawny Owl Feather, SEM by Power and Syred/Science Photo Library: The comblike structure of the leading edge of an owls wing with filamentous extension of their anterior barbules on their feathers breaks turbulence into micro turbulence, muffling sound and giving owls the benefit of silent flight. Most other birds and including raptors (and some daylight hunting owls) do not have this structure. http://tinyurl.com/3mtgr59 #Owl_Feathers #Tawny_Owl #Feather #SEM #Power_and_Syred_Science_Photo_Library

Tawny owl (Strix aluco) feather detail, scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Owls have the benefit of silent flight due to the filamentous extensions of their anterior barbules on their feathers. Most other birds including raptors do not have this feather structure. This gives the owl an added advantage when swooping on its unsuspecting prey. Magnification x161 at 10cm wide.
