Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

DOUG SHOOP: Minnesota nature photography

I stumbled across this website which details the beauty of nature.
Some fantastic shots of remote areas of extreme Northeast Minnesota that few people visit.

Nice -- I haven't been "up north" in a long time. haha. Minne-snow-da. We just finished "Indian Summer" -- a term first used in the book "Letters from an American Farmer" from the 1760s. So I'm putting up the window plastic to get ready for the winter fun.

We just had a big flock of juncos arrive and according to the Minnesota ornithological union listserve I'm on -- that means winter is on the way! Only a minor frost a few weeks ago was just a false alarm.

There was a big foot sighting this summer just 5 miles south of us -- another blurry image in the woods. At first I thought maybe it was me since I'm always in the woods everyday and I'm unkempt.

The last bigfoot minnesota photo was just a deer camera catching a rainjacket of a hunter -- but if you looked at it gestalt reverse style it was bigfoot. haha.
