Birds: Spoon-billed Sandpiper

Spoon-billed Sandpiper in danger of extinction.

This story was sent to our local birding listserve. You can read a similar one, with compelling photos, at also.
You know, even if they weren't such neat-looking birds, we can't let them go extinct because of our (human) impacts on the world. :( :-/ Less than 200 or 300 breeding pairs in the

I just finished writing up this entry for hp_costuming and thought I'd share here.

So I FINally got my DH release photos off my camera (I had been lazy) and I have some great ones to share!!

My mom helped me make a Hufflepuff robe, and I must say I am thrilled with the way it turned out. it took us forever and was a lot of hard work, but very worth it! :D I have a few photos of that to share, and many of other peoples' awesome costumes!

Here's pictures from the release at Barnes and Noble that night, and some of my thoughts.

It was an amazing experience. I am thrilled that I have been part of this excitement. years from now we will be able to look back and say "we were there."

so I've read some HP spoilers. I do not want to, yet I find myself irresistably drawn to them and read them and it's too late. ticks me off that people ruin other people's fun on purpose. ticks me off that the New York Times posted a review (though I hear it didn't give very much of the plot away.....but tells what the Deathly Hallows are, and how many people die). JKR said this:

"I am staggered that some American newspapers have decided to publish purported spoilers in the form of reviews in complete disregard of the wishes of literally millions of readers, particularly children, who wanted to reach Harry's final destination by themselves, in their own time. I am incredibly grateful to all those newspapers, booksellers and others who have chosen not to attempt to spoil Harry's last adventure for fans."
