Happy Fri. Nice day here. Started out at 33 and will go up to the 60s. The bird sounds in the yard are diversifying. The steady tooting of chickadees and chipping of redpolls has been augmented by the ringing of a junco and the churbling of a robin. And at different times Pam and I […]

Happy Thursday. Pale here, +34 and rising. Still lots of snow on the ground, but patches of ground are now showing through. The birds all seem busy. Wonder what they are doing.

We walked at Creamer’s Field refuge yesterday and sank knee-deep into the snow pack now and again. The geese and cranes have not arrived, though I hear they have reached Delta. So the redpolls […]

Happy Mon. Nice day here, cooler at +3. We got about two inches of snow Saturday. Most of the new stuff is gone now. We watched the 1984 film Amadeus again, not having seen it for many years. Great film. Milos Forman, the director (Hair, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), based it on English […]
