Birds on Betsy Bell Hill

I went for a walk on the above-named local landmark on Friday morning, and saw a fair number of passerine species. It was warmer than usual, which may have accounted for the low number of warblers. I was surprised by the absence of any birds from the flycatcher family. Highlights:

  • Blue jays (many, loud)
  • Flickers
  • Downy woodpeckers (M, F)
  • Hairy woodpeckers (M)
  • Ravens (2)
  • Black and white warbler (F/J)
  • Blackpoll warbler (F/J)
  • Black throated green warbler (F/J)
  • Red-eyed vireo
  • White-breasted nuthatches
  • Titmice (many, loud)
  • Chickadees (many, loud)

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.


Explanation

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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