Green heron in Staunton

Green Heron So, I took a casual drive north of town around the middle of the day, and wouldn't you know it, I came across the greatest number of non-abundant species I have seen all summer. I was impressed by the large numbers of Purple martins and Kingbirds, but the biggest surprise came when I was driving back into town: a Green heron was standing on the mud alongside a pond on the north edge of Staunton. In the evening I drove back with my camera and luckily it was still there. (As you can see, it's not very green.) Then I checked out Bell's Lane and was pleased that the Yellow warblers are still around.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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