Black-capped Chickadees

The chickadees are my favorite backyard bird because they answer my calls.     They’re also even prettier now that I can photograph them with my new lens.  The details are so amazing.     Chickadees are as small as 4.7 inches long including their tail and the body is only 2.4 inches.  The white […]

Moose

Last Sunday I went to Solitude hoping that I could see some of the last birds.  The fall colors were gorgeous.     Sadly, there were no birds.  The whole time I saw two chickadees.  In fact, I went home, sat in the yard for an hour and saw nine yard birds.  But I finally […]

Shrieking

When Stonewall wants something, he’s taken to screaming at the other cockatiels.  It freaks them out so much they run away from him.  I’m trying to teach him that he won’t make friends if he goes around bullying the other birds.     Hopefully he’ll eventually learn.

New Vegan Restaurant – Frisch

There’s a new vegan restaurant in town called Frisch and I’m obsessed.  This is a kale salad and veggie wrap.     Amazingly, all it takes to be full all afternoon is a salad, a wrap and chia pudding.  Chia is the new wonder ingredient in health food.  It has a huge amount of protein […]

Leucistic Scrub Jay

The day after I posted about the Western Scrub Jay, in my backyard I saw a leucistic scrub jay!  And oh yeah, that’s a flicker in the background just hanging out.     All weekend I was doing non-birding things like going to a play, attending the symphony and making dinner.  I slipped outside for […]

Cooper’s Hawk

I had a bunch of gift certificates for Athleta so I bought the most comfortable yoga pants you’ll ever wear.  They’re so awesome.  You don’t even realize how hard you’ve had it until you upgrade to ridiculously expensive yoga pants.  I was telling Jon that I wish I could work from home so I could […]

Running Playlist

Occasionally I Google my name in case someone is talking bad about me on the internet.  I realized today that my running playlist on Spotify is associated with my name.  I’ve since deactivated their automatic publication setting.  Ridiculous.  Potential clients do not need to search on my name and discover that I like to run […]

Broken Tail Feathers

You know how with kids there is often a little kid that’s running after the big kids saying “Wait up guys”?  That’s Stonewall.     When Conner and Trevor fly to me Stonewall tries to come with him, but his wings are clipped very closely so he falls quickly.  He also has these strange moments […]

I know I already posted about Broad-tailed Hummingbirds this summer.  But this time they’re drinking from purple flowers!     Also, this time I can show you every angle of these birds.  The females have rufous underneath their wings and white eye rings.  And look at her little claws.         They also […]

Western Scrub Jay

I’m having the same reaction this fall that I’ve had since living in Utah where I can’t be excited about fall because it means all the birds leave and I’m left living in a cold place devoid of interesting birds.  I’m especially concerned this year because I’m addicted to biking and running to work and […]
