From strange behaviors and special adaptations to newly discovered species and the researchers who find them, his subjects celebrate how alien yet relatable so many of the creatures that live among us can be.

ByBec Crew
June 27, 2022


With golden plumage sitting on its head like ears, a small beak obscured by fluff, and huge round eyes, the big-eared nightjar looks like a plump little dragon.

A nocturnal species known for its haunting calls and unusual habit of incubating its eggs on the forest floor, this beautiful bird is a sight to behold for those lucky enough to spot one in the wild.

Big-eared Nightjar (Lyncornis macrotis) are found throughout Southeast Asia, primarily in lowland moist forests in places such as Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and parts of India. They belong to a small group of eared nightjars within the large nightjar family Caprimulgida.

Among the seven known species of eared nightjar are the spotted nightjar (Eurostopodes argus) and white-throated nightjar (Eurostopodus mystacalis), both native to Australia, and the Satanic Nightjar (Eurostopodus diabolicus) from Sulawesi, Indonesia, which has made a name for itself – some say its “plip plop” cry sounds like it’s gouging out a person’s eyes.

The big-eared nightjar is among the largest nightjar species and has one of the most impressive sets of ear tufts. In fact, from certain angles, these ears are a little reminiscent of Batman?

Like a true creature of the night, the big-eared nightjar has a layer of tissue behind its eye called a tapetum lucidumwhich reflects visible light through its retina to give it superior night vision.

Also present in the eyes of cats, crocodiles, fruit bats and many other animals, the tapetum lucidum is an evolutionary marvel – check out this one, taken from a cow’s eye:

The motley patterns of gray, black, brown, and maroon that run through the big-eared nightjar’s plumage help keep it camouflaged on the forest floor, where it will incubate a single egg at a time.

This is a rather odd tactic for a bird, which could just as easily (and arguably more safely) incubate its young in a high nest high in the trees.

Here’s a big-eared nightjar demonstrating this amazing camouflage, which is so good I’d be afraid to step on it:

What makes the big-eared nightjar’s insistence on nesting on the ground even stranger is that it flies fantastically and spends a lot of time in the air. In fact, it eats while flying – it catches and eats insects in flight – and even drinks while flying, gliding along lakes and rivers and picking up water from the surface.

Whatever the reason for the big-eared nightjar’s penchant for trailing on the ground, it’s worth keeping your eyes peeled if you’re in nightjar territory. This spotted nightjar, for example, pictured on Gunbarrel Highway in Western Australia, really doesn’t want you to kill its vibe:

Bird enthusiasts are in for a treat when the 10th annual San Francisco Bay Osprey Days takes flight from its Mare Island headquarters this weekend.

The free public event highlights osprey nesting with guided hikes, trailers and presentations. Following Hybrid/Virtual Osprey Days in July 2020 and June 2021 due to COVID-19 challenges, this year’s event will again be held as a hybrid in-person and online event.

There is no cost or pre-registration required to attend the in-person field trips and zoom presentations. Two-hour guided boat trips from Vallejo Marina cost $45 per person and require pre-registration with Dolphin Charters.

The free event features numerous drive-in caravans and walking tours scheduled every three days, led by field guides from the local Napa-Solano Audubon Society and Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, other naturalists and the crew. volunteers from the Mare Island Heritage Trust.

Myrna Hayes, President/Executive Director of the Mare Island Heritage Trust and former volunteer leader of the Mare Island Reserve, is again looking forward to the event, but acknowledges that organizing the event was difficult.

“The logistics of holding events without headquarters from a hospitality center to a central gathering place and place of respite is more than a challenge,” Hayes told the Times-Herald. “I mean even ospreys have a nest to return to! However, I love the level of excitement and goodwill this Osprey celebration generates. You can’t imagine the number of calls/texts/emails from people telling me they’re bringing a young son or older father, all so excited to see up close and learn more about the Osprey.

Four two-hour boat cruises are scheduled by Dolphin Charters on Saturday and Sunday.

Dolphin Charters says pandemic restrictions will limit passenger numbers. A limited number of places are always available for all tours. Departure times from Vallejo Marina for the 2-hour Osprey boat tours are Saturday and Sunday 9-11 AM and 1-3 PM. The cost is $45 per person. Pre-registration is required. For reservations: call (510) 527-9622 or (800) 472-9942 or visit dolphincharters.com.

A rally is scheduled for Saturday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the Mare Island Coastline Heritage Reserve Entrance Park, Correa Court at Azuar Drive on Mare Island. It will include a light barbecue and refreshments for a requested donation. Osprey are likely to soar and call over the small park outside the gates of the reserve on these evenings. Park users and Osprey enthusiasts began to park and congregate outside the preserve gate due to the 5 p.m. closure of the main preserve by the city’s public works department. town of Vallejo.

Ospreys have nested in very small numbers for over a decade in the bay, thriving in San Francisco Bay since the early 2000s when the first successful breeding pair took up residence at the south end of Pier 34, at the mouth of the Napa River in the Mare Island Coastal Heritage Reserve. Numbers have tended to remain stable or increase with each nesting season.

As of 2021, 19 nesting sites have been documented on the Napa River/Mare Island Sound, including 56 throughout the bay. The osprey has not been documented to have nested in the San Francisco Bay in the 20th or 21st centuries or even in earlier times dating back to the Shellmounds of the indigenous peoples of the bay. Public interest and scientific monitoring of these newcomers are constantly growing.

Recently, webcams have become popular tools for public access to breeding birds. Two webcams monitor the bay’s osprey nests with the latest webcam placed by Island Energy at the northernmost nest on Mare Island at the intersection of the Hwy 37 exit and Walnut Avenue.

to play

I think it was Jesus who encouraged his disciples to become “fishers of men”. And honestly, this task seems a lot easier than the literal job of catching fish.

Fishing requires a level of patience that I don’t have. You would know that if you had ever seen me pacing the stage at one of my talks.

Last week, I was reminded of my distaste for fishing again when I took my grandsons and their parents on a fishing boat in Seward, Alaska. We were fishing the big halibut that we had seen people bringing home the day before, prehistoric 90-pound monsters.

To begin the trip, I put an anti-motion sickness patch on my arm and filed my visa to charter a boat from Alaskan Summertime Charters. Jon Tippit is the captain of AK Summertime. I trust Jon because he mentored my son, Michael, in his dream of being captain. It’s also my California neighbor during the winter months.

Including Jon and me, the little boat carried eight souls: my wife, Becky, our son, Michael, our daughter Brittney, her husband and two sons.

During our hour-long cruise to the fishing grounds, Jon acted as the guide, pointing out dolphins, whales, puffins, and WWII gun emplacement.

When we arrived he dropped anchor about 100ft from a rock formation where we started to fish in earnest. On my first cast, I landed a rockfish.

A few minutes later, this little catch took its revenge when my body started screaming to get my breakfast up.

My teenage grandsons joined me along the side, followed by their father.

Apart from the two professional fishermen on board, the only other people who held on were the fisherwomen.

This whole experience made me wonder how Jesus was so successful in recruiting sinners to be his first disciples.

The story is told in Mark 1:16-18.

“One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of ​​Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the water, for they were fishing for a living. Jesus cried out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish people!” And they immediately left their nets and followed him.”

This passage has always bothered me because I come from a tradition that preaches that we Christians should always lag behind for souls. I was taught that we must first hook the unsuspecting sinner and convince him that he is doomed. Bring him to the altar of the church and help him towards the truth. It was the only way to save the poor fish – uh, man.

But over the years, my work as a chaplain has taught me to see a different angle from that of the fisherman.

We are not all fishermen. Thus, it seems more likely that Jesus used the fishing metaphor to personalize his message to Simon and Andrew.

While these anglers readily understood fish talk, you and I respond better to metaphors than we know. For example, the teacher may hear Jesus say, “Follow me and teach my people.”

The musician hears him say: “Follow me and sing the joys of the kingdom. Engineer can hear: “Follow me and help people solve their toughest problems.” We can all hear different words that reflect our calling. “Follow me and I’ll make you (fill in the blank).”

For me, in my job, that means helping people where they are, providing the help they need. I must not try to turn them into something they are not. Ultimately, I have to let Jesus do this.

Finally, I know the question you’re dying to ask this fisherman setter: did you catch anything? We missed the elusive halibut, but Brittney caught six rockfish against mine.

Yeah. I am certainly not a fisherman.

Daisy Kelliher started Season 3 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht with the mindset that she wasn’t going to take “you know what” from anyone. It proved difficult for the chief stew as he ventured through turbulent waters aboard Parsifal III.

The luck of the Irish did not always smile on Kelliher as she handled professional and personal disputes within her department, initially between second stew Gabriela Barragan and third stew Ashley Marti. That was until the environment was too much for Barragan, leading to Scarlett Bentley taking on the position of junior stew.

First mate Gary King, whose flirtatious ways didn’t make it any easier, added to the drama. As the wedding bells ring for guests on the final charter and the season finale on the horizon, we caught up with Daisy to unpack what we’ve seen so far and get some burning questions answered.

Crazy enough that the crew had to plan a wedding in such a short time.

Daisy Kelliher: It was definitely a lot. At the same time, I’ve been doing this for 10 years, so I was kind of like, “It doesn’t matter, we’re going to do it or not.” I’ve reached a point in my career where stress won’t help me. I trust. We can only do what we can do in 24 hours, but it turned out pretty amazing.

Gary was at the center of many of the problems you encountered in your service. Looking back, how difficult was it?

I think I came in pretty confident and left with a way that I wanted to handle everything. It did not work. People are going to do what they are going to do. Gary’s part was very difficult for me because I feel like I really pushed his support away last season. I tried to take a different approach with him this time. I tried to be gentler. It didn’t seem like either approach was working. It was a massive struggle within my team, but it was a great learning and growth curve for me. Me and Gary, I think we had a better relationship this season. That’s not all Gary. It’s the girls too. Work-wise, the girls were amazing, but it wasn’t always about work.

(Photo by: Laurent Basset/Bravo

Do you feel like you could have done something different to prevent Gabriela from leaving mid-season?

I see the comments. I know a lot of people think that was my problem or my problem with Gabriela’s meltdown. I don’t agree with that. I maintain the fact that I did my best. Gabriela is the same age as me. I think it was a lot in his head. Someone can be a little paranoid or feel like everyone is against them, but there’s not much I can say or do. It was a personal inner growth she had to work on.

See AlsoCaptain Glenn Shephard talks about a tense situation in ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ Season 3The crew faces new charters and challenges aboard Parsifal III in Menorca, Spain.

You’ve certainly had your share of difficult charter guests. Erica Rose is back. Then you had a very demanding charter with Dr. Kim Nichols. What was it like reliving those experiences?

No one believes me, but it was actually worse in real life than on the edit, compressed [version]. People lived through this for an hour. We had three full days of it. Seeing him again was funny. They’re not horrible people. Everyone has a good heart. They were screaming my name as I ran around, maybe they didn’t realize the impact. I am also a human. I don’t know how they felt watching. I look back and laugh because I can’t believe I went through this and it happened. It was all a bit surreal.

Ashley felt she should have been higher up the stew hierarchy. It came back when Scarlett arrived and you decided to do the two junior stews. Did it make you think of a second and third stew?

I think it was important for me to show the girls that we are a team. I tried to explain to Ashley, who didn’t air, that in the yachting industry the only reason we have a second stew is to have a platform to move forward. It’s motivating, but it’s not there to lead people or be above someone else. It was important to me that she understood that by the end of the season. It made me think a lot about what I will do next time. Maybe I’ll make everyone a junior stew.

When it comes to your relationship with Gary, everyone seems to be jumping in, including Captain Glenn Shephard. What do you think of the infatuation between you two?

I knew back then during the season that my big story was going to be me and Gary. I predicted very well what story was going to be told. The people behind the scenes explained that the chemistry between us was so intense. The whole boat could smell it. I was prepared for what was to come. I was surprised at how obsessed everyone is with us being a couple. I thought everyone would be against it. We’re just friends. I hate to say this to everyone, but there’s nothing more. Just very cute.

For the moment…

For the moment. Never say never. Last year, there was no way I was telling her I was going to kiss her. So it was surprising.

Do you think seeing him flirting with all the girls was the exit?

Massively. I was the first girl in the first season that he flirted with. It didn’t air, but I scanned it right away. Other people commented that since I wasn’t giving him that attention he was looking for it elsewhere. I thought that was an interesting point. Fair enough, but as soon as he left with Sydney [Zaruba] and Ally [Dore] and now Ashley and Gabriela – yeah, maybe things would have ended differently if he had continued to pursue me, but he didn’t. We’ll never know.

How would you sum up the season?

I thought it was hard to top season 2 because so much happened. This season has been a rollercoaster of emotions. So much happened in Season 3. For me, it was a lot of ups and downs. Like last season, the goal for me was to come out strong with a strong team and a loving friendship. It was a huge success. It’s the pleasure of the show, having the public with us. There were times when they might have thought, ‘Are we going to make it? Will the boat make it? We end on a big high, which you will see in the finale.

What can we expect from the reunion?

I think people took responsibility at the meeting. It’s good to talk about the incidents of the season, but it was good. I think we’re all still talking to each other.

Get away with your family on a catamaran charter in the BVI – Harlem World Magazine https://saltwaterconnections.org/get-away-with-your-family-on-a-catamaran-charter-in-the-bvi-harlem-world-magazine/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 21:06:20 +0000 https://saltwaterconnections.org/get-away-with-your-family-on-a-catamaran-charter-in-the-bvi-harlem-world-magazine/ Planning a family vacation can be tricky because people of different ages always seem to want different things.

Planning a family vacation can be tricky because people of different ages always seem to want different things.

It seems like no destination appeals to toddlers, teens or adults of all ages.

But the options change quickly in the world of travel. There are now more destinations and experiences available than ever before.

There is a generation that would have thought that average vacationers might consider chartering a catamaran for a cruise in the British Virgin Islands. Yet today, chartering is more popular than ever, especially for family groups.

Much of this wonderful increase in accessibility is due to the emergence of international boat rental operators like Borrow A Boat. This leading charter company offers an extraordinary number of boats for rent – over 35,000 at any one time.

New York Sightseeing Pass

It also offers its customers a simple but useful website Borrowaboat.com which shows all the boats available in each location and pages of useful information and advice. This makes the process of chartering a boat quite easy for anyone to master.

A family planning to rent a boat in the British Virgin Islands can find hundreds of yachts and catamarans available on the Borrow a Boat website. It’s the easiest way to plan a charter boat vacation.

Even the busiest extended family group, with all the normal competing demands and interests of different age groups, can arrange the perfect boating holiday. From Phuket to France, the website has a huge selection of sailing yachts, motor cruisers, catamarans and superyachts to choose from.

Whatever holiday trip you are planning, there are boats of all sizes and for all budgets. Best of all, for a family vacation, the booking process can be so easy and quick.

The simple digital service offered by Borrow A Boat takes away much of the usual stress of planning holidays for different age groups and generations. The entire charter booking can be done in just five minutes.

Access the site via laptop, tablet or smartphone and discover how easy it is to research, plan and book family vacations. As well as photos and details of all the boats available in the BVI, there are also destination information pages.

It provides an expert guide to organize vacations in the islands. This makes it a great one-stop site to plan your vacation to this ideal sailing destination.

It helps that the BVI is world famous for its clear turquoise seas, beautiful palm-fringed white sand beaches and safe waters to sail. These islands are full of harbors and coves, and the distances between them are short, making them an ideal sailing destination.

Where to go

Most vacation charters begin at marinas on Tortola Island, in places like Road Town (the capital), Nanny Cay, Sea Cow Bay, and East End Bay. But there are plenty of nearby islands to visit, such as Jost Van Dyke, Anegada and Virgin Gorda.

Overall, the BVI comprises around 60 tropical islands and cays. About 16 of them are inhabited – so there are plenty of options to navigate.

They range from Tortola, which is 12 miles long, to dozens of tiny uninhabited islands of coral or rock. There are many tourist spots scattered among these islands, making it easy to find things to explore in any part of the BVI.

For example, the thermal baths of Virgin Gorda are one of the main tourist sites – a magnificent beach littered with huge round granite boulders that have been declared a national park. These create charming little sea pools, hidden caves and coves that are delightful to explore.

Another completely different national park is a short hike inland. Gorda Peak National Park surrounds the highest point of the island, a prominent cactus-covered hill with fabulous views of the other islands.

Or head to Jost Van Dyke Island to find White Bay, one of the Caribbean’s top-rated beaches. It’s a spectacular long strip of clear white sand backed by swaying palms and protected by a coral reef.

There is a channel through the reef for charter boats to safely enter and anchor in the crystal clear water off the dazzling white sand beach. There are also plenty of beach bars and restaurants here.

On Tortola, there’s a quieter beach to get away from. The famous Smuggler’s Cove beach on the western end of the island is very sheltered and secluded.

This is a favorite spot for those looking for a quiet day swimming with sea turtles or swimming from the undeveloped beach.

What better way to create lasting memories with your family and kids than going to Smuggler’s Cove and swimming with the turtles

It is never too crowded, as it is difficult to access by road. This means that a charter boat is the best way to get to Smuggler’s Cove.

And if that’s not enough, set sail for the island of Anegada. It has a different feel to the rest of the BVIs as it is low and protected by Horseshoe Reef, one of the largest in the world.

This helped keep it underdeveloped. It is an island that is more popular with adventurers and wildlife lovers than partygoers and foodies. They’re usually too busy enjoying the lively social spirit of BVI hotspots – like Road Town on Tortola and The Valley on Virgin Gorda.

The BVIs offer so much variety that there is something for everyone on a charter vacation. Even families who normally can never agree on anything end up agreeing that this is one of the best boating destinations in the world.

In today’s modern age, technology is within reach. Worlds of information are accessible through our phones, connecting us with places we have never been and people we have never spoken to. This technological advancement has also become commonplace in our transportation – automobiles have become mobile computers, and motorboats are increasingly like automobiles on water.

So how can Sarasotaans disconnect and relax while enjoying the natural beauty the area has to offer? By booking a private charter with Key Sailing, the longtime local sailing outfit. Private charters from Key Sailing start at $200 per hour, accommodate up to 12 guests, and offer 2, 3, and 4 hour charters.

“Our most popular outing is our 3 hour tour – which seems to be perfect for most people’s budgets and allows us to get out a bit further out into Sarasota Bay. We immediately cruise out of the slipway and take you there are you most of the time it’s in Sarasota bay but it can be towards the edge of the gulf – people sometimes assume that the best sailing is from the gulf but that’s not always the case – you can see all seven barrier islands in the bay,” says Sarasota native Jan Solomon, who runs Key Sailing with her husband Tim.

Each charter, regardless of its duration, is personalized as much as possible for the passengers.

“We are very aware that for each guest, it is not just a boat ride for them. Many have saved up, or they have not seen their grandchildren, or they have not had a date lovers without children. It’s a big deal for them – it’s something they look forward to, so we make sure to look forward to it ourselves,” Jan attests.

Here are some of the best stories from last week from NBC 6 News:

Inmates attempted to smuggle contraband using drones, corrections officer says

It’s Miami’s downtown prison that rises from the concrete below and is surrounded by radiant luxury condos.

The federal detention center, known as “FDC Miami”, houses 1,300 detainees, including the likes of Alex Saab, who the federal government says is a close ally of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

FDC Miami staff told NBC 6 investigators exclusively that drones were used more than once in an effort to circumvent concrete prison security.

Eric Spears is a corrections officer at FDC Miami and president of the officers’ union.

“We’ve had drone incidents recently,” Spears said. “There have been attempts to bring potential contraband into the facility.”

Spears shared an email he says he sent in April, telling the facility’s management that he had received several reports of “inmates or cohorts” using drones to “deposit narcotics and/or ‘other contraband items (i.e. weapons, cell phones, etc.)’.

When asked how, Spears declined to provide details citing security concerns.

City officials and those from Elon Musk’s Boring Company visited Fort Lauderdale to determine some possible sites for a tunnel. NBC 6’s Kim Wynne reports

Fort Lauderdale one step closer to ‘Las Olas Loop’ underground transportation system

Nearly a year after receiving an unsolicited proposal for an underground transportation system connecting Fort Lauderdale to Fort Lauderdale Beach, the Fort Lauderdale City Commission has approved the next steps to make this idea a reality.

On Tuesday, the commission authorized The Boring Company to conduct feasibility studies that will lead to an affirmative decision on whether the network will be infiltrated.

The company, owned by Elon Musk, submitted the proposed plan in June 2021 which details what a “loop” system is and how it differs from traditional underground transportation.

“Loop is a high-capacity underground public transportation system in which passengers are transported in Tesla vehicles through tunnels built by TBC,” the proposal states. “Loop is an ‘express’ public transport system and is more like an underground highway than a subway system.”

The document also explains the choice to place the loop in Los Olas Boulevard and how the decision would benefit the greater Fort Lauderdale area, both residentially and financially.

“Las Olas Boulevard is one of the main east-west arteries connecting downtown Fort Lauderdale to Fort Lauderdale Beach – two major hubs of activity and destinations for locals and visitors alike,” it says. -he.

A year after the El Mula shooting, the police are still investigating. Reporting by Tony Pipitone of NBC 6.

A year on, El Mula shooting impacts victims, police and careers

The May 2021 mass shooting outside a banquet hall in northwest Miami-Dade left three dead, injured 20 people – some seriously – and put law enforcement on standby alert for what could have turned into a bloody gang war for the rest of 2021.

But, based on interviews both inside and outside law enforcement and a review of crime statistics, NBC 6 investigators found that it didn’t happen. apparently not produced.

What happened, our investigation found, cost lives, caused suffering, changed policing and altered career paths for two veterans of the Miami-Dade Police Homicide Bureau.

More significantly, the shooting claimed the lives of three youths, two men and a woman attending what was to be a launch party for a local rapper at the El Mula Banquet Hall; Another 20 were injured, some of them paraplegics or otherwise carrying the daily pain and suffering that accompanies gunshot wounds.

The national average price of a gallon of gasoline topped $5 for the first time ever.

High Gas Prices Impact Lawn Care Companies and Consumers

Gas prices in Florida have hit a new high as the price per gallon nears $5.

AAA data shows that the average cost of a gallon of gasoline in Florida is $4.76. This is up from $4.19 a month ago.

But local consumers aren’t just feeling the pain at the pump. The high cost of gasoline ripples through and hits you in other areas.

The cost of maintaining your lawn could also increase.

“I mean just like all the awards are completely gone,” owner Jamie Kolnick said.

Kolnick says she’s noticed a slight increase in the price she pays for lawn care services.

She is not alone.

NBC 6’s Cristian Benavides gets first-hand insight into how the Miami Coast Guard prepares for in-water emergencies

Coast Guard warns locals and tourists to avoid illegal boat charters

In early summer, tourists, locals and everyone else will flock to enjoy South Florida’s oceans and waterways by boat, but Coast Guard officials warn it’s not always so simple as it looks.

In recent years, there has been a string of illegal charter busts in and around Miami Beach, an event that isn’t expected to slow down anytime soon, according to U.S. Coast Guard officials in Miami.

Many charters operate illegally without proper permits or licenses, without valid training in safety or drug and alcohol testing, and without a verified inspection certificate.

When caught, they are eligible for cessation of use of their vessels as well as monetary penalties and criminal prosecution.

To protect against getting in trouble with the law and to ensure personal safety, the Coast Guard encourages charterers to take precautions before setting sail.

Facilities forced to limit hours and threaten to cut programs due to 100 fewer lifeguards than in previous summers, as Alyssa Hyman reports.

Huge South Florida departments and organizations struggle to recruit lifeguards for summer

Some South Florida organizations and departments are facing lifeguard shortages heading into the summer.

This mainly affects swimming pools and water parks, and the challenge is felt across the country.

“This year, we’re really struggling to recruit enough lifeguards,” said Jim O’Connor, aquatics program manager for the Miami-Dade Department of Parks and Recreation.

O’Connor said there were about 100 lifeguards short of where they would normally be at this time of year.

He says it could also reduce programs such as Learn to Swim.

“We have to reduce the hours, until we have enough staff,” he said.

Eric Gomez, associate executive director of water sports for the YMCA of South Florida, said the facility faces the same staffing issue.
