Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  This was the first year that I can remember where we didn’t travel somewhere.  It was glorious.  I got to spend the entire day lounging around.  I got so bored I was happy to go back to work today, at least for the first couple of hours.  Working until 7pm was less than […]

Teddy Roosevelt is High Strung

Puppies are exhausting.  Jon made Teddy Roosevelt tired this morning by throwing a frisbee 200 times.  An hour later, he’s ready to run around again.  This is the face he makes when he’s really manic.  This was a new bone and there’s nothing Teddy loves more than a new bone.   Teddy also makes this […]

Red-winged Blackbird

I’m so tired of having too much work and taking classes.  I have finals in three weeks and I can’t wait just to have a few weeks of relaxation.  I also can’t wait to go birding.  These blackbird pictures were taken last summer.  This blackbird wants you to know that he is waterfowl.   The […]

More Teddy Roosevelt

Teddy Roosevelt continues to steal my husband’s heart.  Every time I let him out of his kennel he has an expression like, “You again?  Where’s the other one?”   Teddy is great when he’s relaxed, but he still has boundless energy.  Jon finally found a suitable bone and he loves it!  On a side note, […]

Winter Wren in China

China has wrens!  They have the same eye stripe and spotty plumage as our American wrens.  I think he looks like he’s wearing pajamas because the plumage comes down over his legs.     We apparently have the same species in the United States as you can see from this range map.  I think the […]

Teddy Roosevelt has been here for over a week.  He’s settled in very well and completely stolen the attention of my husband.     He’s generally uninterested in television, but he gets crazy when watching The Walking Dead.  He actually barked at the television, and Teddy Roosevelt does not bark.   He’s a lot more […]

Bushtit

These pictures of Bushtits are from California.  These birds are only 7-8 centimeters long and weight 4-6 grams.  How can a birds weigh 4-6 grams? They’re always in a group moving fast around a tree, at least when I’ve seen them. It’s because they eat insects that they have to move so fast.
