More mountain-top birding

Deciding that conquering Elliott's Knob was not enough, Jacqueline and I decided to climb Humpback Rocks yesterday. It's only about 800 feet up from the parking lot, about one-third of what we climbed on Wednesday. The wind was very strong, with mostly clear skies and cooler-than-normal temperatures. Conveniently (not!), I had left the new digital camera turned on overnight without recharging the batteries, so it was useless and we wasted a good photo-op. I guess that's how you learn. Anyway, here are the birding highlights:

My legs still hurt like hell from all that climbing, especially the calf muscles, and my right arm is still healing after throwing out that first pitch last month, so I've only got one good limb right now.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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