Snowy egret forecast

Snowy egret More snow is forecast for tomorrow, so I thought it would be appropriate to share this photo of a Snowy egret that my brother John took recently in South Carolina. Pretty awesome, huh?

Scaups on Bell's Lane

Today was relatively mild, so I took a quick hike along the new trail on Mary Gray hill, adjacent to Betsy Bell hill. I heard a few woodpeckers, and saw a small White-tailed deer, but the only bird of note I saw was a White-breasted nuthatch. Then I drove out to check the ponds on Bell's Lane, and found:

* Allen Larner reported seeing two Greater scaups there today, so I may be mistaken. They were over 200 yards away. The most exciting wildlife discovery was a Red fox that was crouched near one of the ponds. Unfortunately, we haven't had the Northern harriers or Short-eared owls that usually spend the winter in that area.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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