Balmy spring day

March may have gone out like a lion, on the frigid side, at least, but April came in like a lamb, with warm summer breezes. Actually, it was pretty windy for a while. I went for a walk behind the Staunton-Augusta Rescue Squad late this afternoon, and heard many Cardinals singing, along with other birds. I saw my first Phoebe of the season, as well as a Golden-crowned kinglet (F), and a Brown creeper. I also heard a Towhee.

Out back this evening I saw the first bat of the season, swooping just a little too close for comfort, so I went back inside.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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