McCormick's Mill early spring

I stopped at McCormick's Mill on a nice day last week, and saw several Tree swallows for the first time this spring, plus a few other birds of note. At other places that day I also saw some Towhees and a White-breasted nuthatch. Highlights:

Robins are now back in full force, another sign of imminent spring, while Pine siskins are still showing up at our feeder most days. I heard a bump on the window about ten days ago, went outside, and found a dead Pine siskin lying on the ground. What a pity.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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