Alex…we hardly knew ye….

Thu ,13/04/2017

just finished this book, Alex & Me – very interesting read. here’s a short video of what the book is about – Alex, the amazing African Grey parrot! Sadly he passed away in 2007, but his legacy and insights learned from his ‘birdbrain’ – live on.

Alex also made an appearance on Scientific American Frontiers and met Alan Alda – watch the whole episode here. You can fast forward to about 9:59 if you want to just watch Alex.


Have yourself a Merry “Robin” Christmas….

Sat ,02/01/2016

So on Christmas Day this year, it was pretty mellow at our house. No kids, no tree (two cats make that impossible – destruction would ensue), just the two of us having a nice, quiet am.

But outside our house – there were a bazillion Robins, Starlings and other birds, plus a few intrepid hummingbirds, zipping around all over the place – in the crabapple trees in our front yard, in the holly trees in our side yard, and taking baths in the street in front of my parked Beetle. It wasn’t freezing around here, obviously. Enjoy!

just got back from vacation in Puerto Vallarta – enjoyed watching these crazy ‘zanates’ (otherwise known as a grackle) zip around and make weird noises all day – Zanate!

if we can’t keep drones out of the skies with laws and or bottle rockets – hawks may have to step up – as we say in Seattle – Go Hawks! 🙂

Snow birdies!

Thu ,19/01/2012

In the past couple days over our wussy Seattle ‘snowpocalypse’ the backyard birdies are still hanging in there. Today I got pics of a certain fat robin that hangs out by one of our holly trees, and of a swarm of bushtits that periodically visit the suet feeders. I have seen chickadees zipping around too, besides the usual seagulls and crows (there are a pair of crows that usually hang around too, but haven’t seen them in the past week)…
