As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Rare bird species showing comeback

CAMBRIDGE - Several rare species of birds may be making a comeback, including the majestic trumpeter swan, says a local birding enthusiast involved in this year’s annual bird count.

Local birders spotted species thought to be rare, including wild turkeys, red-bellied woodpeckers as well as the trumpeter swan.

That’s good news, according to Levi Moore, coordinator of the Cambridge count.

“Trumpeter Swans were once critically endangered, so it is great to see their populations continue to rise.”
