Home-bound Bird Photography Tips

10,000 Birds

I’ve always birded from home for as long as I can remember. I remember seeing a Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl sitting on our fencepost just after sunset when I was not even ten. I may not have known their correct species names (I thought Tropical Mockingbirds were roadrunners) but I knew they existed. Tropical Mockingbirds on a neighbor’s tree. A Saffron Finch on the same tree. Now, every day I end up subconsciously birding from before my eyes open in the morning.

I interrupt this virus for a cuteness interlude

We now have 12 baby chicks in the living room. It’s amazing to witness how much they change and grow every day – sometimes, it seems, every hour! Only one day after I took this photo, some of them had suddenly sprouted teeny but real wing feathers. No matter what else is happening, it […].

Neom is Saudi’s mega-green Gotham city

Green Prophet

A rendering of Neom, an intentional futuristic city breaking ground on the Red Sea of Saudi Arabia. Where robots outnumber people. A $500 Billion desert dream, funded by oil money.

We’ve already read that Saudi Arabia wants to be the new Ibiza and that reform is happening there at breakneck speed.

Blue-throated Frenzy

With their exceptional metabolism, Hummingbirds are almost constantly on the move to find each season’s best feeding grounds. My area of central Mexico is rich in Hummingbird species, but I do not know any places that are year-round sure things for large numbers of Hummers. Still, when a site gets good, it really gets good! Of all my favorite sites, none is as socially distanced as Cerro de Garnica.

Birding News from Costa Rica at the Start of the Pandemic

How quickly things can change.

Echidna-egg laying mammal-500th post!

10,000 Birds

When I realised that this weekend would be my 500th post for this website I thought I could broaden the “birding” topic to “egg-laying” topic. In Australia we have two egg-laying mammals. These are the Platypus and the Echidna. We have observed a lot more Echidna in Australia than Platypus. Platypus prefer a water habitat and their location in Australia means we have rarely travelled to where they live. During our recent visit to Victoria Echidna were often encountered.

Juniper, plagues, and waxwings – Arrowood Farm-Brewery: Waxwing Juniper Farmhouse Ale

Plagues of Biblical proportions can generally be counted on to provide plenty of zoological variety, from droves of frogs and lice to swarms of flies and locusts. Being generally more charming and attractive to us humans, birds aren’t generally included among these unwelcome hordes.
