Chipping sparrows arrive

I heard some Chipping sparrows for the first time this spring a few days ago, and after the sun finally came out this afternoon, one appeared at our feeder, the first I have seen. Fortunately, it stayed put while a took a picture:

Not much else to report. Where are the swallows??? The recent gloomy weather has made it hard to do any serious birding walks. I did see a Kingfisher perched on a wire along Route 29 on Monday, a rather odd location, I thought.

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.


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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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