Alarm Clock

For some reason the alarm clock hasn’t been working lately.  It’s not a big deal, though, because I have a backup cockatiel alarm. Starting around 7:00 a.m., Conner starts making little happy noises in his cage.  It’s a very pleasant way to wake up on the weekdays.  And he’s not too loud on the weekend […]

House Finches

One of the first signs of Spring is that the House Finches start to sing for extended periods of time. They are very frequent visitors to the backyard, so I get to hear a lot of songs. They’re not very scared of me.  Sometimes they stay on the trellis while I change the seed. I […]

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

In South Carolina I got some fantastic pictures of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.  I saw these at Deseret Ranch last spring but the pictures were only okay.  Here is a great picture! Doesn’t he look like there are quill feathers mixed in with the red?  The females have a more even red cap on their heads. […]

The Importance of Routines

Birds are very routine-oriented birds.  It’s very important to maintain a consistent routine for them.  Not only does it make the birds happy, it will make the bird owner happy too because the birds will be less fussy. In the morning I get up and take a shower.  After the shower I take Conner and […]

Phoebes

California and Utah have Black Phoebes. They’re adorable birds that flit around every few seconds capturing bugs.  These birds are ubiquitous in California.  I’ve cataloged every pose in every place.
