George at six years, and counting

George, threads Yesterday marked the sixth anniversary of the day we bought George (yes, as in Inauguration Day), so we consider it like a birthday. He has started singing again over the past week or two, but not very loudly or frequently. He has also started to molt, which is typically when birds are at a low energy level and therefore less inclined to sing or engage in other mating displays. For her part, Princess continues to flirt in the window, but not as vigorously as before. Nevertheless, they are both quite healthy and content, to our immense delight.

Here George is playing with the cotton thread that Princess uses to build her nest.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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)
