PetScoop: Why Birds Are Such Brilliant Flying Machines

flyingmachines.jpg

The above photo from Flying Machines, Amazing at Any Angle--New York Times shows the wake of a hovering rufous hummingbird. The yellow vectors show air velocity, revealed by particle image velocimetry. The mist in the background is a cloud of laser-illuminated olive oil droplets.

According to University of Montana Flight Laboratory biologist and lab director Bret W. Tobalske "the most astounding fliers...are the world's 350 or so species of hummingbirds, which, largely because of their size, have mastered flight like no other bird. The calliope hummingbird weighs only as much as two paper clips, yet it migrates annually between Canada and Mexico."

He and fellow director and biologist Kenneth P Dial research the mechanics of flight and "are obsessed with trying to bridge the gap in flying abilities between humans and birds." Interesting short article. Flying Machines, Amazing at Any Angle--New York Times.

Super Cool Pets Holiday Book Gift Guide

grreading.jpg

Books are generally highly appreciated gifts at the holidays. We have spent many a Christmas afternoon browsing through the literary stash we received --definitely the gifts that keep on giving.

We have included some of the hottest super cool pet books out there. In keeping with our troubled times, many of these are "cozy" books, feel-good stories:

Woof.jpgYou Had Me at Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secrets of Happiness by Julie Klan. Author "was surprised and delighted to find that her dogs had more wisdom to convey to her than she had ever dreamed. And caring for them has made her a better person-and completely and utterly opened her heart."

oogy.jpgOogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love by Larry Levin. The story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted.

ittehbitteh.jpgTeh Itteh Bitteh Book of Kittehs by icanhascheezburger.com. While the first book explained the LOLcat philosophy, the second helped readers live these tenets themselves. The focus is now on the cutest cat of all: tiny, heartwarming, adorable kittens.
