Winter ducks have arrived

With that much-needed three-day deluge of rain finally behind us, I took a quick trip to Bell's Lane late this afternoon, and saw three first-of-season birds, as well as a few other interesting ones:

It is unusually late in the season for a yellowthroat to be hanging around these parts. I also spotted a Red fox only 50 or so feet away, and got some pretty decent video images as it lurked in the undergrowth.

Juncos and Purple finches have been showing up in our back yard fairly regularly, and that "weird" Downy woodpecker is still pecking away at the Goldfinches' thistle seed bags.

This (or that) year's
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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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)
