Breeding season: Shhhh!

It was a beautiful clear, sunny, mild day, so I took a brief walk through Montgomery Hall Park before church this morning. Because it's the middle of breeding season, however, most of the birds were keeping a low profile so as not to attract predators to their nests. Today's highlights are listed below. I also heard a Red-eyed vireo and some Blue-gray gnatcatchers, but no Scarlet tanagers, to my surprise.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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