T40, thank you for both of your recent posts here.

That's such a sad story about the shooting of Matatag.  Hope there is a successful recovery.

Pangarap, the 17-year old PE in your posted photo, is so gorgeous.  I hope none of her potential future wild-release offspring are never centered in a gun sight.  They will face enough other challenges to survive in the wild without being shot.

Maybe they should start fitting the PEs there with bullet-proof vests?  Still seems to be a population of people there who aren't breaking the PE-shooting habit yet.  Such a long way to go on so many fronts to try to save this incredible species of raptor.  At least PEF and their partners are trying to make it happen, and I so hope they make progress in that regard and eventually succeed.

I posted this in the "From the Heart" section, but it bears being here as well...

Bob used to quote this regarding endangered birds:

The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first
material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet
again inspire the composer; but when the last individual of a
race of living beings breathes no more, another heaven and
another earth must pass before such a one can be again.

We saved the Bald Eagle. We saved the Peregrine Falcon.
Conservation issues in the Philippines seem even more
complicated than they are here. The PEF is taking a multi-
faceted approach to help people who are living in extreme
poverty understand why leaving trees and habitat is more
important than taking them down.

Connecting people to wildlife was something Bob believed in
deeply, and we all believe in it too!  So if you can, please donate-if you cannot, how about a kind gesture in Bob or RRP's name?  Even a smile to a stranger can make someone's day better!

Thanks for your time

Thanks, T40.  Those measurements/comparisons are interesting.  I confess, from the illustration, I am unable to determine the difference between the "Bill Culmen" and "Bill Gape" - they look to me like the dotted lines are pointing to the same spots in that drawing for those two measurements.  Maybe I just need a larger view of that drawing to see what is different about those two.
