Frank sent in a video about birds in the rain forest. It is interesting if nothing else. Here is a link to the 5 minute video.
Sharon sent this 5 minute video in (you only need to watch half of it - the second half is not that interesting.) It is a dance performance - circle of life and all that. I wasn't even going to watch it but found it fascinating. Thanks
