Photographer John Moore is no stranger to combat. As a member of an Associated Press team in 2005, he shared a Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography for coverage of the war in Iraq and he's done extended stints in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, South Africa, Mexico and Nicaragua and elsewhere in the last 20 years.
Yet despite his relative comfort with being on the frontlines, Moore told the NewsHour from his hotel room in Cairo that his latest assignment -a six-week trip that took him to the uprisings in Egypt, Bahrain and Libya - might have been his most dangerous. Moore recorded the interview for us after sneaking out of Benghazi, Libya en route back to his home in Denver.
There is an area a few kilometers from my house that has some large communication towers, and they leave the grass uncut till late summer. This makes it a haven for grassland birds who have suffered from recent agricultural practice of early grassland cutting and bailing.
It is always a treat to hear the bubbly songs of Bobolinks when they return to breed.
The male plumage is unusual because it is light above which would seem to make it an easier target for overhead birds of prey.
In the background, Savannah Sparrows and Eastern Meadowlarks are singing.
