This is a very rare type of cloud luminescence, at least in the sky around PA, caught me off guard. This is the only time I’ve ever it wisping (or bleeding) off a cumulus cloud like that as far as I can remember, so it’s pretty cool.

GREENPEACE

Our mission: Greenpeace is the leading independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.

“We ‘bear witness’ to environmental destruction in a peaceful, non-violent manner. We use non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate. In exposing threats to the environment and finding solutions we have no permanent allies or adversaries. We ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests.”

We will not be silenced:

Greenpeace itself is under a multi-million legal and public relations attack by Resolute Fores Products because we will continue to call for the protection of the Great Northern Forest. Learn more about this case.

RISE OF THE INTERIOR LEAST TERN — PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES group

PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES has over 7,000 members and over 292,000 photos and videos.

Contest — Mountains

The Interior Least Tern, once considered rare, may soon be taken off the Endangered Species list, thanks to a partnership of ABC, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).

The success is in part due to management techniques that keep predators off nesting sandbars on the Lower Mississippi River.

HISPANIOLA’S HIDDEN TREASURE — BLACK-CAPPED PETREL — PLANET EARTH ARCHITECTURE group

PLANET EARTH ARCHITECTURE has over 6,000 members and over 265,000 photos and videos. 

Contest — Floors 

BLACK-CAPPED PETREL

The “little devil,” or Black-capped Petrel, is among the rarest and most secretive seabirds in the Western Hemisphere. Extreme habitat loss on their breeding grounds was thought to have driven the bird extinct until its rediscovery in 1963. This species remains in danger of extinction, with fewer than 2,000 pairs in existence.

These seabirds spend most of their lives in flight over open water, returning to land only to breed. One reason Black-capped Petrels remain little known is that their breeding sites are hidden in the rugged mountains of Hispaniola, the Caribbean island shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — BLUE JAY — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 108,000 photos and videos.

BIRD OF THE WEEK

BLUE JAY

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Cyanocitta cristata
POPULATION: 17 million
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Forest edges, open woodlands, suburbs and cities with large, nut-bearing trees.

A member of the Corvid family, related to the Common Raven and Green Jay, the Blue Jay is intelligent and adaptable — qualities that have helped it learn to successfully co-exist with people.

Blue Jays are known to imitate a variety of other bird species, including the Bald Eagle and Eastern Screech-Owl. This noisy bird also utters a wide variety of squeaks, rattles, and croaks. Compare the Blue Jay’s many calls below.
