BIRDS OF THE WORLD New research led by the American Museum of Natural History suggests that there are about 18,000 bird species in the world—nearly twice as many as previously thought . Of all the known bird species, 129 are extinct and 9,787 are living today. By the year 2100, up to 14% of all bird species may become extinct. And 7-25% (28-56% on oceanic islands) may become “functionally extinct.” It means that the number of individuals within these species will become so low that the species will no longer play an important role in their ecosystem.

WINDMILLS & WOODEN SHOES - Holland from American Eyes.

(0)
A Collection of Clip Art, Printables and Stories about Holland written by Maude M. Grant and illustrated by Bess Bruce Cleaveland. THE COLLECTION: This clip art collection includes 60 images from the book Windmills and Wooden Shoes. The images have been extracted and upgraded using Adobe Photoshop to give the best possible results. They can be used in any project but this collection may not be resold. The full pdf book of 128 pages is included in the collection. Maude Margaret Grant (1876 - 1941) was a writer and poet who authored several delightful books. She was born in Monroe, Michigan and later lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States of America. As she writes below, Windmills and Wooden shoes was written as an educational tool for children. In “ Windmills and Wooden Shoes” we have a continuous story of the doings of the Dutch children, Jan and Katrina and their little friends. Teach the children to read this book so that the personalities of the children depicted therein will become vividly lifelike to the little readers. Encourage them to bring to class pictures of Dutch life and of Holland scenery. Make the children in the book live for the children in the class. Let them close their eyes and see in imagination the big windmill, the canals with the drooping willow trees, the slow-moving barge, and the shadows in the water. Picture the busy market place, and the Dutch children at work and at play. Teach the children the words and music of the little song found on page 6. Both the words and music have been arranged to give the rhythmic sound of the wooden shoes as the little Dutch wearers " klip klop ” about in their work and play. The lessons in the book may be illustrated by the children with drawings and paper cuttings, — the Dutch house, the windmill, the Dutch children, the flowers in the garden, the stork, the geese, the dog and the milkcart, the boats, the wooden shoes, and many other things that will suggest themselves from the text to the ingenious teacher. Illustrator Bess Bruce Cleaveland (1876-1966) was born in Washington Court House, Ohio. She studied art at the Art Students League & Pratt Institute in New York and is known for illustrating books, teacher’s magazines, and other commercial art projects.

NATIVE AMERICAN LEGENDS - The Chenoo and the Lizard

(0)
THE CHENOO LEGENDS The Chenoo, or the Story of a Cannibal with an Icy Heart (Micmac and Passamaquoddy.) Glooscap or Glooskap is featured in legends and stories from New England to Newfoundland and Labrador. In fact, recent writers have speculated that Glooscap was pre-Columbian explorer Scottish Prince Henry Sinclair and some have even extended this to a connection with the Knights Templar. One of the best compilations of Glooscap stories and the argument for a close connection with early Viking travelers is found in Leland’s The Algonquin Legends of New England where he describes Glooscap as follows: This is a story of Glooskap. It is told in traditions of the old time that Glooskap was born in the land of the Wabanaki, which is nearest to the sunrise ; but another story says that he came over the sea in a great stone canoe, and that this canoe was an island of granite covered with trees. When the great man, of all men and beasts chief ruler, had come down from this ark, he went among the Wabanaki. And calling all the animals he gave them each a name ….Before men were instructed by him, they lived in darkness; it was so dark that they could not even see to slay their enemies. Glooskap taught them how to hunt, and to build huts and canoes and weirs for fish. Before he came they knew not how to make weapons or nets. He the Great Master showed them the hidden virtues of plants, roots, and barks, and pointed out to them such vegetables as might be used for food, as well as what kinds of animals, birds, and fish were to be eaten. And when this was done he taught them the names of all the stars. He loved mankind, and wherever he might be in the wilderness he was never very far from any of the Indians. He dwelt in a lonely land, but whenever they sought him they found him. He traveled far and wide : there is no place in all the land of the Wabanaki where he left not his name; hills, rocks and rivers, lakes and islands, bear witness to him. Leland’s original publication in 1884 contained delightful drawings depicting some of the Glooscap legends. Using some of the remarkable tools available today, these images have been recreated and updated to a modern level. Each drawing is accompanied by an abbreviated version of the legend it represents.

How to Build a Rainchain

(0)
I’ve always been interested in rainchains and wondered how they would work here in the northeast where we get some substantial downfalls. Well, I finally made one. As I discovered, there are many, many ways to do this … only limited by your imagination. In my case I purchased some cute little blue pails from the local Dollar Store and some plastic chain from my hardware store. Everything else was scrounged or recycled materials. I just removed the handle from a pail and CAREFULLY drilled a one inch hole in the bottom, passed the chain through to the calculated link and crimp the handle back in place. I repeated this until I had the length I needed and voila … my rainchain. I was curious to see how it would work of course, but fortunately there was no rush because I must have chased the rains … nothing happened for many days. But then on September 29, 2012 the rain finally came down. The rainchain worked great, but the water just went into a big pail that overflowed allowing the water to go where we didn’t want it to go! So … I found a 2.5 gal plastic pail that once held drywall compound, drilled holes in the bottom and top with a big hole to accommodate a scrap plastic “pipe” that went to the bottom of the pail. I put some window screen over the top of the pail top so dirt wouldn’t drain into the pail and covered it all with soil … except the “pipe” opening of course. Now the rain drains down the chain, into the pipe and collects in the underground pail where it soaks into the earth. Now it doesn’t flow along the ground to the house entrance like it did before …VICTORY!!
