Soaring to New Heights
My 139th and final species for 2018, the golden-crowned sparrow. From an Anna's hummingbird on January 1 to a golden-crowned sparrow on December 27, 2018 took flight and became a record-shattering year of bird-watching for me. Starting with the Anna's hummi...

An important victory over palm oil is so close we can almost touch it. Two months ago, I  blogged  about the Sumatran Orangutan Society's (SOS) Rainforest Home campaign, which seeks to raise funds to buy a strategic piece of land and restore it from palm-oi...

The Art of Me 2: A Picture Perfect Frame
I've been framed, and based on what I recently learned about frames, I think that's a pretty good development. Around the Cape  in the original matte. When I purchased a print by Pacific Northwest artist Elton Bennett in August, I  blogged  about how I saw ...

The Cost of Cheap Lies
Money can't buy honesty (no surprise there), but apparently, it can't afford very good lies either. Having already designated more than $20 million of its money to oppose Initiative 1631, the fossil fuel industry began sending out misleading mailers last mo...

Falling up the Mountain

Sandhills and Mountains
I saw four volcanoes yesterday, and they weren't even the biggest sightings of the day. One of the sandhill cranes that flew over as I walked the Kiwa Trail at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. The drive to and from the Ridgefield National Wildlife R...

Red (Sky) Means Go on Carbon Regulation
