(2) Long-time bird watcher and nature writer Candace Savage has observed that crows are so intelligent that they can play pranks on each other.
(3) Dolphins have developed a unique sleep pattern that allows them to sleep with one eye open and one hemisphere of their brain still active. The other half of the brain keeps a vigil of the surrounding environment and breathing functions.
(4) Do you know about sailfish ? Considered the fastest fish in the ocean, its speed is as much as that of a running cheetah, the fastest land animal. This speed is facilitated by its hydrodynamic shape, a giant dorsal fin and a long, pointy nose.

LINES by an unknown author

image credit I just found this poem in a very old book in our local library. There is no author name. I share it here :                         LINES The stars are dim, the moon shines cold, A gentle breeze sweeps o'er the lea, And softly falls the rippling sea,  On jutting reef and headland bold.
The chaffinch, eldest child of May, Impatient in his nest awakes, And with his rustling pinion shakes,  The dew that gems the hawthorn spray.
By mountain paths to pastures new, The lonely shepherd leads his flock, Light wreaths of mist on stream and rock,  Spread filmy veils of softest blue.
O ye, who through the slow-paced night, Have watched and wept, lift up lour eyes, Soon shall the golden morning rise, And crown the eastern hills with light.
