What about the SuperB owl?

Pacific Screech Owl As a serious baseball fan, you'd think I'd cover sports more generally and have something to say about the Super Bowl, wouldn't you? So, how about this superb owl photo? Well, I thought it was superb, anyway.

As for the actual football game in Dolphin Stadium, north of Miami, I was pleased by the Baltimore Indianapolis Colts' victory over the Decatur Staleys Chicago Bears, but I wouldn't have minded if the Bears had won; both teams were about due. It was nice that Peyton Manning finally got a Super Bowl ring, after years of frustration. And Prince did a nice job at half time, playing in the rain -- which was not purple, as far as I know.

I took this photo of a Pacific Screech Owl in the Santa Rosa National Park in Costa Rica in February 2005. To see more, CLICK HERE.

My apologies to those who do not appreciate a dry sense of humor; in the Midwest where I grew up, puns like that are actually considered funny!

Birds are singing

Notwithstanding the snow and bitterly cold temperatures we've had this week, there are some signs of spring already. Yesterday and today, I heard some male cardinals singing, to establish territory in preparation for mating season. While outside for a few minutes this evening (gazing at Mercury and Venus again), I heard a killdeer calling overhead in the darkness. I wonder why they fly at night?

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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