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.

Michael Mansour, naturalist in charge of the Hawk Woods Nature Center in Auburn Hills, is about to undergo his third scientific expedition with the Earthwatch Institute.

He’s spent 45-years building up the nature center as its only employee. From programming to trail development and conservation of the 100-acre land, Mansour has seen thousands come through the doors of the nature center off of Bald Mountain Road.

From March 11 to 18, Mansour will travel as a research assistant with Earthwatch scientists to study the endangered whooping crane, the tallest bird in North America, on the Gulf Coast in Texas.
