This morning I took the dogs to Kelley Point Park despite the wind and light rain. It wasn't too bad really- the weather usually keeps a lot of people (and their dumb off-leash dogs) at home and there were plenty of birds around.
I love Brown Creepers and they are always easy to find here...
Little guys but so loud... My favorite birds of the day were two Pileated Woodpeckers- both a female working on a nice hole and a male flying from tree to tree calling.
I finally decided yesterday to give eBird a try. I signed up a long time ago, but only ever filled out a few checklists. I spent hours yesterday (mostly rainy ones) going through old notes and photos and blog entries, trying to get as many birding trips entered as possible. It was kind of mind-numbing and eye-crossing. We'll see if I keep it up...
As for the juicer- it's been awesome! So far I have tried carrot/orange, carrot/beet/celery/lemon/ginger, carrot/orange/beet/ginger (in the photo below), and just now: orange/mango/carrot/ginger (a lovely shade of day-glo toxic waste orange). The next time I go to the store I will get some greens too. Juice=rad.
One last thing! I just watched this preview of a movie debuting at SXSW this year on Stuart Immonen's blog, sitta canadensis. Looks awesome. The guy at 25 seconds thru 33 seconds is me, I swear.
