My Top Ten Birds of 2016

The year 2016 has been a pretty good year. Here’s hoping your 2016 was as full of great birds as mine was. Birding 2016 Top 10I opened the year in California and even though I flew out in the evening on New Year’s Day I did see some species out there that I would otherwise not have seen for the year. Winter birding around New York City was just so-so but I did add one species to my Queens list.

Staycation 2016

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The summer holidays are almost upon us in Britain, and also in other parts of Europe and people may, at present consider as to whether – if they have not booked already – to spend their money to go abroad or to rather vacation at home. In view of the “aftermath” of the vote of the British people to leave the European Union and the subsequent fall of Sterling vacationing in the UK or at home at home, so to speak, might be a good option.

National Tree Week 2016

2016—Year of the Cat?

The Alien Next Door

Walt Whitman Leslie Wu of Forbes Magazine beat my tagline today in wishing you a Happy New Year: Says Wu: “ Although we’ll be ringing in the year of the fire monkey for Chinese New Year in February, it could be said that 2016 will be the year of the cat…Cat cafes are springing up across Canada, where those lacking feline companionship can reserve time with these most reserved of creatures. “ Do I contradict myself?

First Phoebe of 2016

10,000 Birds

I saw my first migratory Eastern Phoebe of 2016 on 18 March at Kissena Park, thus kicking off spring for myself two days early. As I have for the last several years, I will now ask the same question of midwesterners and northeasterners that I ask every year: When did you see your first Eastern Phoebe of 2016? Below are my first dates for the last ten years if you are really interested in such things… 2016 – 18 March.

Little things, you may have heard, mean a lot. Montgomery wrote that it’s dreadful what little things lead people to misunderstand each other. That observation hits home this week, but I stand with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who pointed out that the little things are infinitely the most important, not just in solving mysteries but also in our daily lives. If big things are bumming you out, enjoy the little things.

To honor this beautiful material, London's SCIN GALLERY, Materials Library and Resource, presented a collection of wood curiosities called Growth Rings. The exhibition examined the species of trees that give us the wood we use in architecture, it looked at the DNA of wood and its physiology. Curator Annabelle Filer said, “We are delighted to have been asked to examine wood in this way.

Where Are You Birding This Third Weekend of October 2016?

10,000 Birds

Leaf peeping carries a special connotation for those of us more interested in what is flying amidst the foliage. But many parts of the northern temperate zones have attained the height of autumnal splendor just in time for the weekend. Whether you are focusing on leaves or birds, keep your peepers wide open! I’ll definitely be hiking around the Finger Lakes region for the best vantage point from which to drink in the vibrant colors of fall.

At last, all around the world, people are noticing how interesting life is becoming. September has always been busy for students and their extended support networks, but running parallel to the course of school and activities is a gradual unfolding of one season into another.

Raeburn Winery: Russian River Valley Chardonnay (2016)

It’s also the perfect time of year for a good spring cleaning to find all those drink-sooner-than-later bottles still kicking around the cellar – which is how we unearthed this week’s wine, a 2016 Chardonnay from the Raeburn Winery in California’s Russian River region. The 2016 Raeburn Chardonnay features aromas of ripe pears with a touch of baking spice, and a soft but well-oaked palate with appealing notes of fresh fruit and vanilla custard.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Last of October 2016)

10,000 Birds

At least one weekend a year, bats–particularly the vampiric kind–command more attention than birds, at least from most people. Nature lovers, on the other hand, find time for wildlife watching every weekend. Just be sure to choose a Halloween costume that doesn’t obscure your vision too much! I saw lots of different kinds of woodpeckers this weekend, but that big, honking Pileated always wins out over the others for Best Bird honors.

Enjoy this last weekend before Election Day 2016… who knows where any of us will be birding next weekend! Here in the United States, we’ve emerged unscathed (well, most of us anyway) from one season of horror , only to find ourselves facing even greater terror, a portentous sense of dread that smothers even the faintest joy or optimism.

In every temperate zone comes a moment in spring and a similar one in fall when, all of a sudden, POOF… like magic, the migrants are gone. Maybe you live somewhere reliable for rarities, in which case that unfortunate time may not fall for some time yet. But other locales, closer to the poles and further from the coast, may see migration drying up already, perhaps even over entirely.

Wrapping up a very good 2016

In an effort to look back on the year, I have added, and deleted, written and scratched off, a list of birds that would represent my “Best Ten Birds” of 2016. Much like David Letterman’s Late Show Top Ten List, I will count these down from number 10 to the number one bird of 2016. #10 7 Ridgway’s Rail – Rallus obsoleteus beldingi When I first discovered this bird here in the La Paz, Mexico, early in 2016, it was still called the Clapper Rail.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Fourth of October 2016)

10,000 Birds

Another weekend, another opportunity to regret not spending enough time outdoors. Anyone out there know how that feels? Between work and weather, I didn’t see much this weekend, but my kids and I spotted a mesmerizing flock of European Starlings wheeling about in intricate formations. Appreciation of invasive species may be somewhat heretical in some naturalist circles, but watching these huge winter flocks always entertains.

Where Are You Birding This Second Weekend of December 2016?

So you still have time to add species you missed at the beginning of the year to your 2016 list. Mid-December is an interesting time for birding, insofar as winter (or summer, in the Southern Hemisphere) species precede the official arrival of the season. Just keep in mind that Santa sightings are growing more likely than reports of rarities in most areas. Corey and I will be enjoying local birds in our respective localities. How about you?

Good thing Halloween has arrived to replace real fears with pretend ones.

This Halloween weekend, Corey will be scaring up birds (see what I did there?)

This time of year seems full of surprises, often good ones. I was surprised the weather was gorgeous in my area, notorious for early freezes. I was surprised lots of birds that might have left weeks ago were still hanging around. Most of all, I was surprised my consistently underperforming football team actually transcended its limitations and played big. I love a weekend of good surprises.

Another memorable year pulls to a close with the new one bumping up behind it. Did you see enough birds this year? Do you see the ones you wanted to see, in the places you desired to visit, with the friends whose camaraderie you appreciate? Will there be more in 2017–more birds, more places, more friends? As you take stock of your last 365 days, consider what would have made that span richer, then resolve to have more of that this year.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of October 2016)

10,000 Birds

One downside to birding in autumn– certainly not the only one –is how almost everything you see heading south is something you caught earlier in the year heading north. Another downside is how drab many of these migrants are relative to their spring appearances. However, one major upside, assuming you take advantage of what October has to offer, is a cup of something pumpkin-spice flavored to warm you up after a cold day in the field.

Best Bird of the Weekend (First of October 2016)

Around here, October feels a lot like March in reverse. The month eases you in, docile as a lamb, but promises to bite you on the back end. Hope you took advantage of one of the more gentle weekends this month has to offer. I enjoyed autumnal splendor down in rural Pennsylvania at that perfect moment when lush green foliage begins to mix with brilliant red, orange, and gold.

As we move into October, we can see beautiful weather and skies streaming with birds on the horizon. But don’t look too far ahead if you live in the Northern Hemisphere… the dead of winter looms in the distance. Look up instead; you may just see lots of raptors. I’ll be heading down to rural Pennsylvania to try to spot some southbound migrants. Corey will likely be doing the same in the NYC area. How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding?

Best Bird of the Weekend (Last of September 2016)

10,000 Birds

For those who track avian migration, each new week may bring a fresh arrival or herald a new departure. Of course, birds only represent a sliver of the near-infinite flora and fauna that, collectively, grows, blooms, dies back, and lapses into dormancy over the course of a year. I’m only musing on seasonal changes because one of my many environmental allergies flared up today. The coming of autumn is bittersweet indeed.
