This blog is going to help me explore and express my interest in and theories about the nature of birds. In particular, it will focus upon the physical capabilities of avian species in relation to rearwards motion on land. Join me, Digby Common Poorwill, as I seek to conquer the myths and expose the facts of the secretive world of ornithology! Along the way, we will develop a fellowship of understanding; we will have some humorous, “flighty” occasions, some academic romps, and maybe finish things off with enlightenment and a generous helping of Colonel’s Original Recipe (aka. a bird) around a primordial, crackling campfire.
You and I, utilising the wonders of new, global social media technology, may just be able to move forwards on moving backwards.
