FF – I heart Foto Friday 3

As I said last week, I like the idea of Foto Friday so much, I'm back with Foto Friday 3! While I don't plan to turn Fandom Fridays into Foto Fridays exclusively, for the time being, this is a great way to share some of the gazillion pictures I've been taking with my new camera....

FF – I heart Foto Friday

Since I got my new camera, I've used every excuse in the book to post my pictures. On Monday, I discovered another wonderful justification for sharing my shots - Foto Friday! I was browsing a blog called Shail's Nest and noticed she had articles called Foto Friday with a number (and it looks like she's... Continue Reading →

MM – Camera followup

Last Monday, I wrote about the pending arrival of my new toy. One week later, I feel compelled by my obsession to do a camera followup. I'm happy to report my camera arrived in plenty of time for me to get shots of the full moon, and I'm still ridiculously happy about the whole thing.... Continue Reading →

MM – Tufted Titmouse Troubles

Last week, we got enough icy snow on the ground that I couldn't make it down the hill to my Avian Eatery. As a temporary solution, I shoveled out a spot on the ground near our house, and scattered the birdseed and such around. While this Tufted Titmouse enjoyed the new location, he was not...

MM – Microblog Mondays

When I participated in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) back in November 2014, I stumbled upon the idea of doing short, social media status update-types of blog entries. This is part of the description from the Stirrup Queens website about Microblog Mondays - MicroblogMondays is a response to the mass exodus from long blogging in... Continue Reading →

MM – Picture day, birds

It seemed like such an easy thing to do. Pick a theme for each of the four Mondays in May (National Photography Month), then post seven pictures for each theme (the arbitrary goal I set for myself). I had about two weeks to prepare. The themes were easy - birds, my late father (his birthday... Continue Reading →

MM – Knock, knock joke

Knock, knock. Who's there? Who. Who, who? What, are you an owl? I was outside a few days ago, stalking looking for my crows, and the little guy above decided to play hide-and-seek with me for a good ten minutes. I think I may have graduated from the Crazy Crow Lady, to the Crazy Bird... Continue Reading →

MM – Valiant visitors

The epic battle between Elsa and Mab for title of "Queen of the Winter that closed Dunkins"  continues here in New Hampshire, and all signs point to spring happening sometime around July. However, the near-and-sub-zero temps haven't frightened everyone away from our yard - we still have a few valiant visitors. Cool thing about this... Continue Reading →

FF – I heart birds

Happy Friday the 13th! In honor of this lucky day, and to help justify my latest obsession... err, I mean, hobby, I'm sharing thirteen of my favorite and most recent bird photos (out of the approximately three hundred on my computer). See, kids - Mommy doesn't need an intervention, and she's not a crazy bird... Continue Reading →

MM – Grumpy bird is grumpy

As Snowpocalypse 2015 continues here in New Hampshire, the general mood amongst the birds today was grumpy - I agree with you, birds. Oh, I agree... *sigh* Admittedly not as catchy as “winter is coming” but I like the sound of it so much more. This coming Monday (February 2nd) is auspicious for many reasons.... Continue Reading →

WW – Crow-incidents

Living here in New England, crows are as commonplace as Dunkins. However, in the past few months, they've been popping up so much that they caught my full attention. This morning, I finally grabbed my handy copy of Animal-Speak and looked them up. I always knew they were pretty magical, but what I read especially... Continue Reading →
