Your links just go to search pages, TRL. It's not immediately clear what is driving you to the throes of passion.

It’s World Migratory Bird Day
Every traveler needs a place to rest from time to time. In the case of the snow goose, that place needs to be very large. Snow geese travel in flocks of hundreds, sometimes thousands, as they travel north to their springtime breeding grounds in the Arctic tundra. They stop along the way to rest and forage, relying on places like Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in New York, where our homepage image was photographed. World Migratory Bird Day, recognized on May 12, highlights the need to protect habitat for winged travelers like these.

It’s Endangered Species Day
We chose this photo of a peregrine falcon—a female, walking across the rail of a balcony in Chicago—to inspire hope on Endangered Species Day. Not every animal listed as endangered is doomed to extinction. Peregrine populations were decimated by the use of pesticides, such as DDT, in the mid-20th century. The chemicals accumulated in the birds’ bodies, causing weak eggshells and high mortality rates for chicks. But by the 1980s humans had learned the cause, reduced or eliminated the various chemicals, and helped the birds rebound with gusto.

My one complaint about peregrines is that they are messy eaters.

They leave dead pigeon parts all over.

If you want a whole pigeon, Chili, you have to catch it yourself. :-D
