Birding around Swoope

It was bright and sunny but with mild temperatures today, so I decided to do a different sort of birding venture: a Sunday drive to various birding hot spots around the village of Swoope, a few miles west of Staunton. I made it as far as the Boy Scout Camp, and saw at least a dozen turtles on the lake there. Today's highlights:

I was distressed to see for the first time evidence of large-scale logging on Little North Mountain, near Trimbles Mill. I was aware there was a controversy about that several months ago, and it is sad that the beautiful scenery has been spoiled.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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