Australia & Canada

Who knew that the two continents were at one time connected?! certainly not I, the Green Librarian. Then I read the article entitled “Geologists Find That a Remote Region of Australia Was Once Connected to Canada” by Bryan Nelson over at Mother Nature Network. Something else to research.

Buffalo north of the border

So a century later, buffalo are once again roaming in Banff National Park, Canada’s oldest national park. That according to the article entitled “After More Than A Century, Bison Return To Canada’s Oldest National Park” by over at NPR. First Indiana (check out the post Indiana, bison and car and now Alberta, Canada.

Where the wild animal sings

I came across this article today over at High Country News. It’s an article that  combines my kind of music with nature, something I don’t always come across

In fact, the minute I found that one of the musicians mentioned in the article wrote a song (sung by one of my favorite bands) that’s on my music player, I knew it was the article to post.

The article is entitled “The obscure music where wild animals sing from the heart” by Pat Ford. Now if you get the chance, check out Whispers of the North by Gordon Lightfoot and listen to the loon at the beginning. Good stuff!

Canada & icicles

Only in Canada would they create an atlas on icicles. It was put together by Dr. Stephen Morris at the University of Toronto and a graduate student (now an instructor at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary) Dr. Anthony Chen.

You can read all about it in the article entitled “Winter’s Sculptures, a Drop at at Time” by James Gorman over at the New York Times. How cool is that (no pun intended)?
