I never thought about verdins much before this year. I knew they existed, ridiculously tiny songbirds not much more massive than the insects they eat. That was before I had them next to my desk for most of the workday.

Here is a story of a beautiful, once numerous bird going slowly extinct so that California can sell milk. Here is a story of an agency delaying action to protect a disappearing predator. I wake up ...

Pandering to scientific illiteracy isn't a new thing in Washington D.C. Every day in the nation's capital seems to bring its share of ludicrous statements and actions from people who ought to know better, from denial of the reality climate change to fourth-grade misconceptions about human reproductive biology. It's just disappointing when that pandering comes from the Smithsonian.

The reported deaths at the solar power plant ebbed only slightly after peaking in April, and more than half of the carcasses showed signs of injury from the plant's concentrated solar energy.

Great news from the Truckee River: Pyramid Lake's population of Lahontan cutthroat trout has been seen spawning in the river for the for the first time since 1938. And it's only due to a lucky break that the Pyramid Lake population of cutthroats hasn't been extinct since then.

Introduction
Passionate solitudinous desert lover. See Coyote Crossing at http://coyot.es/crossing for more.
Bragging rights
I was given a fancy certificate for perfect attendance in first grade. I have discovered an homeopathic cure for existential misery, but it requires a broad desert valley full of sun-warmed Artemisia tridentata. When James Watt was US Secretary of the Interior I persuaded him to use organic pest control methods in his garden. At age eight my parents handed me over to a band of Hungarian priests who ran a mysterious "school" where the pedagogy involved sitars, wine and lasers. I have smuggled Buddha statues across state lines to deliver them to fugitive members of the American Indian Movement. I firmly believe Thai sweet chili sauce is the only acceptable condiment for use on Tater Tots.
