Dinosaur of the week: Eurasian Jay

This Garrulus glandarius was looking for food on a meadow in Oxford, England, UK, Europe. The species, unlike some Homo sapiens on the island, can plan for the future.

Dangers to these birds are the daft who use their feathers for fishing or decoration. On top of, that there are the silly who persecute them because of their natural habit of feeding on  newly hatched birds of other species.

Dinosaur of the week: Common Moorhen

This Gallinula chloropus was taking a bath in the London WWT centre, which is definitely worth a visit. Although regionally extinct in Equatorial Guinea, the species is not under major threats in other areas. I’d love to write such words more often!

Dinosaur of the week: Western Marsh Harrier

This Circus aeruginosus was flying over the reeds of Otmoor, an RSPB reserve. The species is facing threats like shooting and in Otmoor in particular habitat loss because some nitwits want to build another road in the area.
