Friday Ark #61

We'll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and....?

We will add your post to the list if you do one of the following:

  • Leave a comment or trackback to this post,
  • Use the Carnival Submission Form,
  • Email Modulator or
  • Our extensive staff finds it during our weekly search of the web
Of course, if our staff goes on strike then we will link only those posts someone tells us about.

Visit each border and come back regularly Friday-Sunday to visit new boarders. And do link to the Friday Ark whether you use trackbacks or not.

Extra, Extra: All Ark boarders are invited to shout out at the Friday Ark Frapper Map.

Dog folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey's Musings.

Cat folks:
remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 87th edition will be hosted this week by Scribblings. There are more weekly cats at eatstuff's Weekend Cat Blogging which has many participants who may not be familiar to Ark or Carnival participants.

Bird folks: I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers is published every 2 weeks. Send your links for the 10th edition to Mike. The 10th edition is up and hosted by the Thomasburg Walks.

New for the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles. The second edition is up at Snails Tales.

Arkive editions of the Friday Ark.

Looking Ahead: Thanksgiving is next week and like last year we will be traveling and will have limited time and bandwidth. This wasn't too much of a problem then. There were only 22 boarders. Now there are often over 100. More on this next week.

Apologies and Alert: Well, I thought this went up 6-7 hours ago. I do remember publsihing it at about 2:00 AM EST and apologize for any inconvenience. Note that staff will be updates will be slow to not at all between 10:00 AM and 3:30 PM EST.

Note for Haloscan Users: Haloscan started (the end of July) rejecting trackbacks if they were submitted "too rapidly" by the same host. I don't know what the timer is but it is long enough so that it was very difficult to ping everyone that is using Haloscan for trackbacks. I'm sure that they are doing this to try to hold back the tide of trackback spam but it makes the service pretty useless for carnival type posts. Perhaps you can contact them and urge some different solution. Update: Typepad appears to be doing the same thing. Everytime I update the Ark it appears the timers are reset and the long list of MT autogenerated pings fail. Yecchhhh....

Hello Dear Modulator,

this week's issue, #36, of Birds in the News features a photo of the greenwinged macaw, Ara chloroptera. Some of your readers might recall that this species was mention in the news this week because a woman stole one of these birds by stuffing it in her bra. As always, I also have many other fascinating stories and pictures of birds that were featured in the news this week.
