Mild day at Augusta Springs

Great Blue Heron I spent much of the day hiking around the Augusta Springs wetlands and nearby trails, joined by Bill Funk, who has worked on various conservation programs in this area. The temperature was surprisingly mild, and the insects were few in number as well. We didn't see any particularly spectacular birds, but I did get a fairly decent shot of this Great Blue Heron. There were at least three Green herons as well. Also, Bill pointed out a Snapping turtle in one of the ponds, along with a Painted turtle. Today's highlights:

Near the end of our hike, I spotted this huge fungus, nearly 12 inches across, which I believe is a "Chicken mushroom":

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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