More hummers arrive

Though groggy from another late night hacking away at the keyboard, I managed to get outside for a walk behind the Staunton-Augusta Rescue Squad this beautiful morning:

The juncos and kinglets [see Apr. 27] are gone, but there are still lots of White-throated sparrows hanging around. I'm pretty sure I heard a male Yellow warbler singing in the bushes, but he never came out.

Just as we were sitting down for dinner this evening, a male Ruby-throated hummingbird showed up at our nectar feeder for the first time this spring. That was nice.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
