Summer Solstice Spineless Wonders
     What happens when you plan to go birding but you forgot your binoculars? (d'oh!)      You look at the things right under your nose. Inverts! They are just as fun to look for and observe as birds and many people keeps butterfly and moth lists just as bi...

Beach Babies
     I spent last night at my parent's house in Nassau Co. on Long Island. My sister, her friend, Tim and myself went to see Steve Miller and Peter Frampton play at Jones Beach. What a great show (I really LOVE the Steve Miller Band) it was.      As everyon...

Earned Time
     At work it has been so crazy busy (which is really, a good thing) and when it gets that way, I end up working beyond my regular hours (and days of the week). I earned today, a day of freedom for myself to do whatever I wanted. I chose to bird.      The...

Everybody's Heard About the Blurd...
     In the world of birding today, it is SO EASY to find things thanks to social media. When a rare bird shows up, Twitter literally tweets about birds and their locations. I will say, finding something on your own, is far more rewarding-- but to get a bir...

A Fallout of Birders
     Yesterday I had the pleasure of working into the evening, which meant I had the whole morning to bird! On Tuesday the termite hatch out happened. This is not a true hatching, but what is called the nuptial flight of termites. The virgin queens leave th...
