November bird update

I've been under the weather for the past few days, and therefore have not spent much time outside. Earlier in the month, I was just too busy to do much birding, though I did join an Augusta Bird Club field trip at McCormick's Mill led by Jo King last week. I'm probably missing lots of interesting migratory ducks and whatnot. Recent first-of-season sightings include:

  • Northern harrier*, Nov. 1, Bell's Lane
  • Fox sparrow, Nov. 4, behind SARS
  • Pine siskin, Nov. 15, back yard
  • Winter wren, Nov. 21, behind SARS

* I'm pretty sure I saw a Harrier flying over a reservoir near Big Levels in the Blue Ridge in late September.

Sharp-shinned hawks have been menacing our back yard fairly regularly for the past few weeks. In the last three days, I've seen both an adult and a juvenile. We also had a White-crowned sparrow, a winter species that only rarely comes inside the city limits. None of the pictures I've taken turned out very well.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


Explanation

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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