Slaty-backed forktail

The slaty-backed forktail is a species of forktail in the family Muscicapidae. A slim, medium-sized forktail, it is distinguished from similar species by its slate grey forehead and mantle, it has a long and forked tail banded in black and white, a white rump, a white bar across its primary feathers. The sexes look alike; the bird frequents the edges of fast-flowing streams and rivers, where it hunts small invertebrates by hopping among rocks or flying out over the water. It breeds between July, laying 3 -- 4 pinkish, bluish, or white eggs; the slaty-backed forktail is found near streams and rivers in tropical and subtropical regions straying further from flowing water to the edges of roads and trails. A solitary bird, it may be found in pairs, or in family groups in the breeding season. One of its calls has been described as similar to that of the Blyth's kingfisher, for which it has been mistaken; the forktail is found in the central and eastern Himalayas, the Indian Sub-continent, southern China and continental Southeast Asia.

Its wide distribution and stable population have led to it being classified as a species of least concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The slaty-backed forktail was described scientifically in 1836 by British naturalist Brian H. Hodgson, it was placed in a new subgenus Enicurus in the genus Motacilla, which contains the wagtails. The specimen used to describe the species came from Nepal; the species name is the Latin adjective schistaceus "slaty-grey". The slaty-backed forktail is placed within the family Muscicapidae, which includes Old World flycatchers and chats. A genetic study found that the slaty-backed forktail and the little forktail were genetically more distinct from the white-crowned forktail than were other forktail species; the slaty-backed forktail is a slim, medium-sized forktail between 22 and 25 centimetres long, weighs between 26 and 38 grams. It is coloured slate-grey and white; the bill is black, while the feet of the bird are a pale greyish colour.

The iris has been described as dark brown, though it has been recorded as black in certain specimens. It has a black throat and a narrow white stripe across its face till just behind the eyes, sometimes describe as a white mask; the white stripe sometimes includes a white eye ring, which may be either partial. Its ear coverts and face are black; the forehead, sides of the neck, the scapulars are slate grey. It has black wing-coverts, a white patch at the base of the primaries, wide white bars on otherwise black wings, a large white patch on its rump and lower back; the bases of the flight feathers are white, visible as a little additional bar on the wing. The tail of the bird is evenly graduated, with a deep fork; the tail is black except for a white tip. It has three white bands along its length, formed by the white tips of shorter tail feathers; the juvenile of the species lacks a white forehead, is brown above, has dark scales on its breast. The tail of the juvenile is shorter than that of the adult: juveniles have greyish or yellowish lores, greyish or white chin and throat.

The flanks are a dull grey-brown. It is not sexually dimorphic; some specimens have been observed to have white tips to their primaries. This feature has been hypothesized to be the result of aging or of wear and tear, has been observed throughout the distribution of the species, it is known not to be sex-related. Though similar to the black-backed forktail Enicurus immaculatus, it is distinguished by its slate-grey mantle and crown, from which it gets its name, it has a larger bill than the black-backed forktail, less white on its forehead. One of the slaty-backed forktail's calls has been described as a "high, sharp, metallic screech,"teenk'", similar to that made by a small kingfisher. Another call is described as a mellow "cheet", it produces a repeated, harsh screeching call when alarmed. The slaty-backed forktail is found near fast-flowing water bodies in tropical and sub-tropical montane broadleaf forests, as well as near cultivated areas; these include rocky rivers, including broad rivers and valleys in plains areas.

A 2000 paper studying birds in northwest India and Nepal found that the incidence of slaty-backed forktails decreased with altitude. The study found that the slaty-backed forktail had a preference for streams that were bordered by dense and complex vegetation, had firm and stable banks of earth, they preferred streams with finer grained sand on the bottom, with "pool–riffle sequences." More the bird is seen in secluded areas of the forest, on the sides of roads or trails near the water. In winter months it has been observed to move from the mountains into plains areas; the species is found in the central and eastern Himalayas, from the Indian state of Uttarakhand in the west to Myanmar in the East, including Nepal, Bhutan. It is a vagrant in Bangladesh, it is found in southern China, in southeast Tibet, in the provinces of Sichuan, Guizhou and Zhejiang, in Hainan. Its range in South-East Asia includes Thailand, Laos, peninsular Malaysia, Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, it is only an occasional winter visitor or uncommon resident.

Its distribution in southeast Asia is discontinuous. The elevational range of the slaty-backed forktail varies geographically, it has been

On 31 August 2015, 1st Infantry Division headquarters disbanded, to become, three months the Headquarters Multinational Division Southeast of NATO's Allied Joint Force Command Naples; the First Army was one of the major units of the Romanian military in both World War I, partaking in such operations as the Romanian offensive in Transylvania in 1916 and the Battle of Mărăşeşti in 1917, World War II, seeing action on the Eastern Front after the 23 August 1944 Coup, when the First Army fought westwards alongside Soviet units in battles such as that of Debrecen and going as far as Prague. Following the end of the war, the First Army was disbanded on 2 June 1947, with the units under its command being transferred to one of the four newly formed Military Regions; this reorganization process was applied to all Romanian armies.

On 5 April 1980, the First Army is reestablished and headquartered in Bucharest, after being assigned units under the control of the 2nd Army Command. The latter is relocated to Buzău. Dan Ghica-Radu was the intelligence office chief from 1998 until 2000. Starting with 1 August 2000, the First Army is restructured, becoming the 1st Territorial Army Corps "General Ioan Culcer", as part of a process to bring the Romanian military in line with NATO standards. On 15 August 2008, as a continuation of the reorganization process of the Romanian Land Forces, the 1st Territorial Army Corps "General Ioan Culcer" is reformed as the 1st Infantry Division, receiving the name "Dacica", is now the heraldic successor of the First Army.

Matauri Bay

Matauri Bay is a bay in New Zealand, situated 30 km north of Kerikeri, in Whangaroa county, just north of the Bay of Islands. It has over a kilometre of beautiful white sand and crystal clear water, making it a popular summer destinations for surfers, divers and holidymakers; some of the first Polynesian navigators to New Zealand landed at Matauri Bay. It was a site of early Maori contact with Europeans, such as with the missionary Samuel Marsden in 1814; the Rainbow Warrior was given a final resting place at the Cavalli Islands. It has become a living reef, attracting recreational divers; the idea was first proposed by the New Zealand Underwater Association. It seemed a fitting end for a ship, it was towed north with a patched hull on 2 December 1987. Ten days a crowd of well-wishers looked on as it was given a traditional Māori burial. Now home to a complex ecosystem, the Rainbow Warrior has become a popular dive destination; the local Māori community maintains its conservation. In a few years, the Rainbow Warrior became an integral part of the environment.

The Matauri Bay area has two marae. Mātauri or Te Tāpui Marae and Ngāpuhi meeting house is a meeting place of the Ngāpuhi hapū of Ngāti Kura and Ngāti Miru, the Ngāpuhi / Ngāti Kahu ki Whaingaroa hapū of Ngāti Kura. Te Ngaere Marae and Ngāi Tupango te Hapū meeting house is a meeting place of the Ngāpuhi / Ngāti Kahu ki Whaingaroa hapū of Ngaitupango. Matauri Bay School is a contributing primary school with a roll of 94, it opened in 1954. Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Whangaroa is a full primary school with a roll of 35, it is a Kura Kaupapa Māori school which teaches in the Māori language. Both schools are coeducational and have a decile rating of 3. A Māori school was established at Te Ngaere in 1876, but student numbers fluctuated as local people moved to seek an income on the gumfields. In 1890, attendance at the school ceased, the building was dragged to the top of the hill by a bullock team to make it more accessible. Changing its name to Whakarara School, it remained open until Matauri Bay School replaced it
