to your web pages! I just got side tracked again for 30 minutes. I went to your links link and clicked on world clock. the link didn't work. so i used sherlock and found some. next used version tracker to see what apps available. then went back to a web page to:<br><br>http://www.stud.unit.no/USERBIN/steffent/verdensur.pl?19,21<br><br>I thought I'd make a world map to see what time it is where you live, and others in UK, Denmark, Philadelphia, etc.<br><br>* * * * * * * * ** * * *<br>Kate<br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by KateSorensen on 05/20/01 09:29 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

maybe I should just use Explorer in here as with Netscape I have to login ...again<br>sorry about the clock et al obviously you found my Links page which is the oldest unupdated page I have .. mmm time to fix it anyway the time right now I have given you Brisbane Time as it is in EST(Eastern Standard Time)..for DST (Daylight savings Time)it is the opposite of yours. I don't think they observe Daylight Savings in Queensland....<br>anyway add half an hour for South australian Time and Two hours for Western Australian Time.. remembering of course that they do have daylight saving, add 1 hour during our summer.<br><br>love this edit your post even after you have sent it thingy :)<br><br>oh and did you discover much about Australia?<br><br>..<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by TreeBeard on 05/20/01 11:11 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

I like all the non Mac stuff on your pages. I like animals, plants, gems, and more. I thought about you as I awoke this morning and the birds were singing.<br><br>Are you aware of any CD or place where I can hear bird calls (and they are identified) so I could begin to learn and identify birds by sounds. As I work in the yard I love to hear the different calls.<br><br>Don't worry about making them any better or different. You'd probably never get around to it and they do offer information and enlightenment. Even dead links are okay because the subject title tweaks my interest and I use Sherlock to look up more info.<br><br>* * * * * * * * ** * * *<br>Kate<br>

Well Kate, I know that in Australia we have always had a book called "what bird is that" by a great man an artist Neville W. Cayley who painstakingly sketched and painted every known bird in Australia. This book was reprinted and reproduced by his nephew or some such later, after the author was long dead. Amongst the reprints was one book of all of the original paintings. Notably, amongst these later publications was another and it was called "What bird Call is that".<br><br>Now this was a collaboration between the nephew and another whom recorded sounds with a parabolic dish. I have no idea whether one such book has ever been published in the US of US birds but that should help you look as I am sure there will be a similar title if it exists ... if not then hire a good sound engineer, show him a parabolic dish microphone and put him to work and do it soon before there are no birds left to record.<br>Yes I have a couple more tapes along those lines which are on the "dawn chorus" or the wetlands bids sort of thing ... I must record them all to CD must !<br>Although all I need is a parabolic microphone as I get the most marvellous dawn chorus out, being between the hills and the lakes... the sounds roll down out of the hills and through the mallee then comes towards me with the sun. I start hearing this chorus in the absolute dark and some two or more hours later the sound finally reaches me and settles all around me as the sun begins to be fully awake.<br>I definitely get different birds sounds than are on the dawn chorus I have on tape. As I live in a different area to the recorded songs and I thus have different birds.<br>I am off to go find a parabolic dish.<br> <br><br>..
