While meandering around the web looking for answers to why the snails were gathered together on the stone wall in Peggy's latest post, I discovered a fascinating blog right under my very nose. Snail's Tales originates in Germantown, MD, home of one of the colleges where Cathy teaches. Perhaps the blogger teaches there, also. He's clearly a serious scientist and nature lover. The blog (to this former biology major's delight) is full of posts on snails, birds, cats, and other creeping (and creepy, appropriately enough for Halloween) things. I especially love the post on hooded crows, which the blogger photographed in Istanbul. Crows are one of my loves. Here's a you-tube of a hooded crow calling in someone's back yard. I found this elsewhere on the web, not in Snail's Tales. The hooded crow is called a "hoodie" in northern Ireland, btw. (See, you can learn things from blogs!!)
I've added Snail's Tales to my list of blogs that I read regularly (not necessarily the same thing as often). Go take a look. He has a fascinating post on the theory of evolution, creationism, et al.
