Hola!

Posted by admin on February 5, 2014 in Birds, Travel |

Hola from sunny Arizona! We started out from Boise Monday morning in mist and snow, and roamed near Hagerman, Idaho, looking for cottonwood trees chock full of Bald Eagles. We found the tree, or the grove and yes, the limbs were festooned with Bald Eagles, looking to me like those Christmas cards painted with conifers […]

On the Snake and Other Rivers

Posted by admin on January 2, 2014 in Birds, Musings |

On Christmas Day, Betty and I ventured south of Boise down to the Snake River Canyon for photography and a look at the wigeons and goldeneyes, the sheep grazing in the snow covered sage, and the river. The Snake is a long river that starts in Idaho with major contributions to its flow rising in […]

The paint peeled and the old bricks disintegrated and the wood splintered and the heat cooked the patched pavement. This was Hannibal, Missouri. Betty and I ventured there on our recent jaunt from Boise to Nashville, Tennessee. Going to Hannibal is something I’ve desired since I was a kid and read some of Mark Twain’s […]

On Wood Storks, Murder and Idabel, Oklahoma

Posted by admin on August 18, 2012 in Birds, Travel |

A couple of days ago Betty and I motored north out of east Texas up US Highway 259 into McCurtain County, Oklahoma, towards the small town of Idabel. I can recall my oldest living aunt, who would have been born around 1903, talking about that town when I was a kid. I have no recollection […]

On Raptors, Rattlesnakes and Environmentalists

Posted by admin on March 2, 2012 in Birds, Musings |

For the last several months my wife Betty and I, along with our friend and bird watcher extraordinaire Leanne Lloyd-Fairey, have helped conduct a raptor watch for the Oregon, southwestern Idaho and southern Washington region. A lot of people are involved in this effort and we are a small cog in the machine that makes […]
