A Buddhist temple is seen at dusk in Thailand's Phetchaburi province, about 120 km (75 miles) south of Bangkok January 16, 2008. The temple, a place of worship for locals, is also home to thousands of swifts nesting in its attic. For the last five years, monks have collected and used the money from selling the birds' nests to support the temple and its grounds. Bird's nest, which is believed to have medicinal properties, is sold for up to $2,000 per kilogram. Picture taken January 16, 2008. REUTERS/Sukree Sukplang (THAILAND)

A bird flu pandemic will hit world economies for one to two quarters as tourism and demand for consumer goods fall sharply, but growth should rebound at a pace similar to Asia's swift recovery from SARS, a senior economist said on Wednesday.

A swan takes flight during the Swan Upping ceremony, during which young cygnets are counted and assessed for signs of injury or disease, on the River Thames near Windsor in Berkshire, southern England, July 18, 2005. The five-day census of the swan population dates back to the twelfth century when the Crown claimed ownership of all mute swans. Today, the Crown retains the right to ownership of all unmarked mute swans in open water, but the Queen only exercises her ownership on certain stretches of the River Thames and its surrounding tributaries.
