A clarification, and some spectacular photos this Friday

9 07 2010

In yesterday’s post, your SEANET blogger reported that gannets were the species most severely affected by the Gulf oil spill. That was based on a report from the Mobile sector and referred only to the birds recovered in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Throughout the Gulf as a whole, Brown Pelicans have been hardest hit, representing over 50% of the total oiled birds recovered live.

The spectacular photos of Andrew Zuckerman have been featured in Audubon magazine.

With that bit of business attended to, the SEANET blogger wants to share an amazing series of photos by photographer Andrew Zuckerman. The works are high definition images of birds against a stark white background. Britain’s Telegraph newspaper recently featured a slideshow of some of the photos, so take a look, but be forewarned, it may cause you run out and buy Zuckerman’s new book, Bird.
