Thanks Taregul,.. It is when I read things like this, that I find it hard to believe that these birds have not been 'programmed' by a master programmer, (' creator!') There are far too many unexplained phenomena in the natural world that I believe point to the fact that we, who believe in God, are maybe, not so stupid, after all!

What a magnificent bird! I saw a program recently that says they are threatened. We must be vigilant in protecting their habitat, and that of so many others!
