Birds on a tilted bird feeder Snowfall and the tilt of this bird feeder full of sunflower seeds did not deter these birds. Northern cardinals (Cardinalis cardinalis) and dark-eyed junkos (Junco hyemalis) were the primary visitors. The male cardinal is bright red and the female is a soft green-gray with red accents. Both have red beaks. The male junco found on the US East Coast has a pinkish beak and is slate gray on the top half of the body and soft white on the lower half. This photo was taken in February 2014 in Cambridge, MD USA. passerine,perching,habitat,winter,Chesapeake,Maryland

Climate change: ghost forest Illustration of a ghost forest, which can be caused by sea-level rise, land subsidence, or both. As land subsides along the coast, trees can drown in saturated soils, creating ghost forests. Salt-water intrusion into groundwater can also cause salt-intolerant trees to die. symbol,vector,illustration,ghost forests,dead trees,climate change,global warming,sea-level rise,sea level rise,land subsidence,sinking,soil,saltwater,salt,water

Oyster racks At Drakes Bay Oyster Company near Point Reyes, CA, oysters grow either as singles or in clusters. The singles are grown as individuals from the larval stage. The single oysters are produced in the indoor hatchery located on-farm, and are then moved to the growing area in mesh bags to resist predation from bat rays. Clusters are created by setting many larvae on shells saved from the shucking and packing operation. These "mother" shells containing the oyster spat (baby oysters) are then strung together on wires and suspended in Drakes Estero. aquaculture,shellfish,west coast,California
