Blue-winged teals on Bells Lane

For the second time in three days, I saw several Blue-winged teals on a small pond next to Bells Lane yesterday, four of them to be exact. After checking my records, I realized that I had not seen any of that species since my very first sighting in northwestern Ohio in August 1998! In the upland area further along the road, I saw a Northern Harrier gliding at low altitude, the first of its kind I have seen around here in over a year. The list of highlights:

Today it turned frigid and wet once again, and we even had snow flurries for a while. Two Downy woodpeckers, a Red-bellied woodpecker, and a Chipping sparrow were among the hungry guests out back.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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