Birding bug bites

I guess I am a glutton for punishment. With the temperature still hovering around 90 degrees, I spent two and a half hours in my sweat lodge of a photo blind in attempt to document the comings and goings of my now four painted buntings yesterday. Despite their beauty and character, my focus was lured elsewhere. Some 10 feet away off to my left sits my lone bluebird box with its four nestlings.

Aging – some do it more gracefully than others…but we all face the many challenges of growing old. Some say aging is a mental state.

Attitude adjustment

As gas prices have continued to climb they seem no longer to have the ability to shock us. Instead, we note each hike in the cost of a gallon of gas with what appears to be a mixture of morbid fascination and grim helplessness, as if we've known all along another shoe is about to drop, and then another shoe and another.

Notes on bringing up a birder

Our wait is finally over. Two weeks ago our precious baby girl was born. No reason now to envy all the new parents in the yard. We now have our own little nestling.
