    Awesome! Thank you, socalwoman, for checking the bells and providing the recording sites! I already spent some time there, just browsing the sounds :-)

    I tried to up-load some of my sound files here (.m4a) but it didn't work.

    I think that's watercolor. Not really a style. It's a medium. The materials used to make the piece.

    This was in my email inbox this morning. I especially like the bit near the end when the bird mimics the "sound of foresters and their chainsaws".

    Why videos I post keep appearing truncated on my screen (yours too?) is a mystery...

    That was absolutely amazing. Thanks for posting that informative video. Incredible how one animal could have such a huge impact on the environment.

    Thanks KBE for sharing - what an amazing, amazing story. I loved the video and am probably going to force everyone I know to watch it.

    Yes, bears, wolves and lions are entitled to live in the forest. If humans must interact, one hopes they can do so with vision and co-operation.

    kumquat I tried to post your video and had negative results also. I suspect it is because it is not one of the supported video formats:



    "Supported videos include:
    Hulu YouTube (Long) YouTube (Short) Vimeo Dailymotion Metacafe Google facebook"

    Sweet videos! I love to see humans helping animals, not hurting them.

    Also, kbe, so amazing to think that just a little thing like a few wolves has such a big effect.

    How true shadesofbleu. We appear so different but in reality, from rocks to rhinos, we are one interconnected thing.

    This is a great pay-back prank but...

    what if things had gone wrong? i.e. tire blowout at speed, roll-over, inadvertent crash? Hmmm....

    Cool, pretty scary ride. Reminds me of a taxi driver we had from the Kennedy airport one time. The guy was driving like a maniac with both feet on the brake and gas. He hit a car and never even asked us if we were ok. We had NO seat belts either! I was furious and terrified.

    Every other forum i'm on has done one. Interested to see if this has been done here?
