          From: brucejohnsonbaugh on 3/2/2014
Photo from Wikipedia.org
 Source1: http://www.youtube.com/embed/88UVJpQGi88
 Text at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Starling

 The Common Starling, also known in the British Isles as Starling,
 is a medium-sized passerine bird in the starling family Sturnidae.
 It is about 20 cm (8 in) long and has glossy black plumage, which
 is speckled with white at some times of year.  The legs are pink
 and the bill is black in winter and yellow in summer.

 Huge flocks of more than a million Common Starlings may be observed
 just before sunset in spring.  Their swarm behavior creates
 complex shapes silhouetted against the sky, a phenomenon known
 locally as sort sol ("Black Sun").  Flocks of anything from five
 to fifty thousand Common Starlings form in areas of the UK just
 before sundown during mid winter.  These flocks are commonly
 called murmurations.

 Click 'HERE' to see these Starlings' "murmurations."  They are
 quite amazing and beautiful.

          From: ginafm on 3/17/2012
 Source: http://www.farmyou.com/falcon_cams/index.html

 This link was sent by a Scrabble buddy from a suburb of
 Chicago.  It is a live-feed video of a mama eagle sitting
 her on 3 eggs.  The first time I peeked in on her, she was
 cleaning her feathers, stretching, checking out the eggs,
 and then she lay back down and went to sleep.   My friend's
 son's Kindergarten teacher sent this link to the parents of
 her students.   The entire school is keeping abreast of the
 event.  Remember, this is live-feed video.  From Gina

 First egg was laid on 02/17/2012.  The estimated first hatch
 date is 03/25/12.

 The babies have been raised.  The video quickly switches
 to a commercial.

 Apr. 2, and the second hatched just after 5 a.m. on Apr. 3.
 The streaming video attracted more than 100,000 viewers over
 the weekend, so many that the site crashed for about two hours
 on Saturday morning.

 In order to fuel its heart and wings that can flap up to 100
 times-per-second, a hummingbird must eat several times an hour.

 illustrates the system of mechanisms that enable a hummer to
 consume several times it body weight in nectar each day.  Paul
 Nelson's commentary is also very eloquent and appropriate.
