THE LIFE OF BIRDS

To take off on a birdwatching adventure with Sir David Attenborough, just peck http://www.pbs.org/lifeofbirds into your keyboard. Birds are amazing. Spend some time with the flock at The Life of Birds site, and the next time somebody calls you "bird brain," you'll know to say "Thank you!" Birds are smart! Find out everything you ever wanted to know about our tweety neighbors at this cyber-nest. And be sure to check out the "Champions." It's a hall of fame for feathered friends: the longest beak, the biggest bird, the fastest flyer and the loudest call--you can even hear it through Real Audio.

JURASSIC ART

From raging volcanoes to the mighty dinosaurs, the images we think of from the Earth's prehistoric times are always larger than life. At Douglas Henderson's Earth History Illustrations, http:// gallery.in-tch.com/~earthhistory/ you can look back at the full run of early life images. The site's artwork will allow you to trek through lush jungles, coal forests and masses of glacial ice. The pictures are divided into periods of the Earth's history, from the Devonian Period to the Pleistocene Epoch. Along the way, you'll marvel at ancient sharks, massive amphibians and flying beasts. Best of all are the dinosaurs from the Jurassic era, who dominated the Earth's landscape.
