Posted March 8, 2017 from Seattle, WA We went to the wedding of the very wonderful son of long-time friends and his very  wonderful fiance in New Orleans.  You know you're old when at 11 pm after dancing all night you're shocked to see a Party...

Posted from Rodeo, New Mexico Jan 5, 2016 I guess it's the 6th Extinction, but the Christmas Counts were down this year.  We found a Gray Flycatcher on the Portal Count and we flushed five Montezuma Quail on the Peloncillo Count.  The next day we went...

Posted December 5, 2016 from Seattle, WA Our friend Brian Pendleton has been working on his Washington state yearbird list this year and yesterday we had the thrill of being there for Number 350.  Brian had been fearing that 350 might be a Mute Swan, non-native...

Posted March 19, 2016 from Seattle, WA   Delia has been under the weather so we ventured out late today to Lake Sammamish State Park, where we did a 10,000 step walk out towards the marina. I overdressed and regretted it in the stifling muggy heat of...

Posted Feb 25, 2016 from Seattle, WA In contrast to the “We mess with Texas” trip, no sunscreen was needed on our recent four-day expedition to the Okanogan.  After an early start we were going great guns picking up birds on I-90 on Friday morning. A...

Feeding birds involves making a pact with the Devil, but it got so cold and rainy I felt so sorry for the Spotted Towhees scratching around back there that I went and bought some bird food. Between the creek and the free food, we’re chumming in some nice...

Posted Dec. 7, 2015 from Seattle, WA   I just realized that since the Inland Waters of Southern British Columbia and Western Washington have now been renamed, and are officially the Salish Sea, that means that a trip on one of the ferries is an oversea voyage. In...

Posted Nov. 20, 2015 from Seattle, WA I’ve heard  “Don’t mess with Texas” my whole life.  If I took it seriously, I would probably go to Florida, Hawaii or California to find subtropical birds in the US, rather than “messing” with Texas.  But Delia and I...

Posted from the Seattle, WA, October 30, 2015 Fall is sort of a benign time in the high desert SW.  No hot windy duststorms like sometimes in spring, and none of the cold that traditionally at least used to come with winter--knock on wood there's snow in the high...

Posted from Seattle August 12, 2015 The Atacama Desert in SW Peru gets the same total of rainfall every year:  none.   With no rainfall lately--  (Newsflash: Until today right now at noon!!! A thunderstorm no less! PS.: at 1 pm:  It didn't produce rain here on Beacon...

See and help save the American Prairie! Posted June 14, 2015 from Seattle WA “I love Paris in the springtime,” goes the old jazz standard, but there’s another place that gets magical around that time and that’s North Dakota!  My friend Brian Pendleton, who I teamed up...

Posted  April 22, 2015 Earth Day from Seattle, WA Bob and Katie are gone, sadly, but it wasn’t hard for Delia and me to imagine their presence as we showed my brother Denis the “Ranch.”  This was his first visit.  Springtime isn’t the prettiest time in...

Posted March 29, 2015 from Seattle, WA   Delia and I have made some half-hearted trips out of Seattle including today to Point No Point.  We found our first Orange-crowned Warbler of the season there, a big squadron of Brant were bravely swimming out in the wind-whipped...

Posted Feb 7, 2015 from Seattle, WA  Delia and I went down to the bootheel of New Mexico again over the holidays.  We had a dust-storm in Wilcox, Arizona on Christmas day, then a snowstom Christmas night and another snowstorm on New Years Day.   I got a...

Posted Nov 92014, from Seattle, WA  Delia and I went out to Three Forks Wildlife Management Unit yesterday, that’s near North Bend and Snoqualmie, WA and encountered this little King. This is a male Golden-crowned Kinglet.  Probably like most birders, I never thought that much about the...
