Morning Open Thread is an open discussion forum for human interest news of the day.
Sorry about that, there will be no “human interest news” today, instead the topic is for the birds. 😉
From BBC Earth: “There are six different species of Flamingo, Liz Bonin visits the Slimbridge Wetlands Centre in the UK to find out more about the greater flamingo. In their efforts to attract a mate they do something no other Flamingo species does…”
In the second video, “Flamingos gather in their tens of thousands on the edges of Lake Bogoria, a saline, alkaline lake fringed with giezers.”
This is a daily open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments. If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet. Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.
Morning Open Thread will be set to post at (or about) 6:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time. For those on international or military times, that is 1030 Zulu Time.
This is Morning Open Thread. Grab your cup, pull up a chair, sit a spell and share what’s on your mind today.
