No mention of proper color management for example did they use the lab's provided icc profiles, or did they send a file and allow the printer service's tech to interpret the colors/saturation etc?  It also is apparent that they received different paper types or brands.  I know that this is simply report of an opinion, but I do not think their testing method was consistent and completely fair to the individual printers.  But thanks for sharing the video Ricky.

Whooping cranes had a successful hatch in Wisconsin, but mortality remains too high to meet reintroduction project goals.

Juvenile Red-Headed Woodpecker
Kenosha Wisconsin

The red-headed woodpecker (Melanerpes erythrocephalus) is a small or medium-sized woodpecker from temperate North America. Their breeding habitat is open country across southern Canada and the eastern-central United States.
The red-bellied woodpecker also has its most prominent red part of its plumage on the head, but it looks quite different in other respects.
Adults are strikingly tri-colored, with a black back and tail and a red head and neck. Their underparts are mainly white. The wings are black with white secondary remiges. Adult males and females are identical in plumage. Juveniles have very similar markings, but have an all grey head. Non-birders may often mistakenly identify red-bellied woodpeckers as red-headeds, whose range overlaps somewhat with that of the red-headed woodpecker. While red-bellied woodpeckers have some bright red on the backs of their necks and heads, red-headed woodpeckers have a much deeper red that covers their entire heads and necks, as well as a dramatically different overall plumage pattern.

A Pair of Red-Tailed Hawks Flying Around
Kenosha Wisconsin

The red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the "chickenhawk," though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common buteos in North America. Red-tailed hawks can acclimate to all the biomes within their range. There are fourteen recognized subspecies, which vary in appearance and range. It is one of the largest members of the genus Buteo in North America, typically weighing from 690 to 1,600 g (1.52 to 3.53 lb) and measuring 45–65 cm (18–26 in) in length, with a wingspan from 110–145 cm (43–57 in). The red-tailed hawk displays sexual dimorphism in size, with females averaging about 25% heavier than males. The bird is sometimes referred to as the red-tail for short, when the meaning is clear in context.

Black Tern
Horicon Marsh Wildlife Refuge, Horicon #Wisconsin

The black tern (Chlidonias niger or Chlidonias nigra) is a small tern generally found in or near inland water in Europe and North America. As its name suggests, it has predominantly dark plumage.
Adults are 25 cm (9.8 in) long, with a wingspan 61 cm (24 in), and weigh 62 g (2.2 oz). They have short dark legs and a short, weak-looking black bill, measuring 27 mm (1.1 in), nearly as long as the head. The bill is long, slender, and looks slightly decurved. They have a dark grey back, with a white forewing, black head, neck (occasionally suffused with grey in the adult) and belly, black or blackish-brown cap (which unites in color with the ear coverts, forming an almost complete hood), and a light brownish-grey, 'square' tail. The face is white. -wiki

TAKSTAR SGC-598 Interview Microphone

In my endless attempt to improve the sound in my wildlife videos, I decided to try a new low cost mic setup. This TAKSTAR SGC-598 Interview Microphone with this Dead Cat wind muff appears to be the answer. We will soon see. LOL
