Frigid morn on Bells Lane

Ruby-crowned kinglet I won't be able to attend tomorrow's Augusta Bird Club field trip on Bell's Lane, but I thought I would scout it out anyway this morning. Boy was it cold! This Ruby-crowned kinglet was hopping around in a bush right next to my car, but I couldn't quite get him to pose out in the open. The highlights:

New book: YuLee

On Friday evening, the local public television show "Consider This" (on WVPT) featured local bird expert (and former dear neighbor) YuLee Larner and Mary Wiersema Vermeulen, the author of the newly published biography of YuLee, titled YuLee. (What else?) It is an inspiring story of a life well spent by a person of deep character and limitless energy, but it is also a rich cultural history of Augusta County and the families who made it. The book is professionally written and produced, which is very fitting. It is available from the Bookstack and the Birds I View store [link added] in downtown Staunton, and I highly recommend it.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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