-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.

I wonder if shrikes will survive if we ever do away with barbed wire fences? :)

I've seen their prey stuck on thorns of trees as well as barbed wire. I guess they'd have to go back to the old methods. Although it might reduce their numbers drastically!! ;)

I saw them at a beach in Ventura County..The beach is a nesting place for both the Snowy's and also. Least Terns..

The Least Terns were already gone when I saw the Plovers..

I looked everywhere for the Plovers, but everyone pretty much said there weren't anymore around there..

I decided I would keep looking, so I walked pretty far down the beach, up and down the sand dunes..

I was getting ready to head back because it was getting dark..

I walked up a dune, and as I was about to go down it, I just stopped, and looked straight ahead..

There were about 20-30 little birds in the sand, and some were running around near the water's edge..

I just sat down and watched them, and started taking pictures..

I thought ( and was hoping) they were Snowy Plovers.. :)

Finally I got to see my Snowy Plovers I had looked for all summer long..


I know that was a long answer to your question, but now you have all the details..lol.. :)

"I know that was a long answer to your question, but now you have all the details . . . "

That was a lovely story, Delilahae. I almost felt like I was with you.
