Why Evolution Is True

Reader Ivar Husa identifies himself as a “novice bird photographer,” but he’s contributed some great bird shots.  Here are three, and for those interested in the equipment, he adds, “The camera was a Canon T2i, with a Canon 100-400mm lens, with 1.4x  teleconverter (560mm).”

Anna’s hummingbird (Calypte anna):

White-tailed kite (Elanus leuceurus)

ACT NOW! Major falconry/raptor conservation issue in MT!


No matter what side of the fence you’re on, please submit your comments to MT FWP. Please call for more research before this is enacted. Personally, I’m for wild-caught falconry birds unless someone shows me sufficient evidence to make me change my mind. But, this proposal by MT FWP is bad news, & not just because it allows for too high of a take rate. It makes no provisions for species, & environmental, impact. Please act if you consider yourself to be any kind of conservationist, from armchair to chaining yourself to a tree.
