Because I love to birdwatch...
and along the way I see many other things...
and learn more about our universe every day...

I rarely go out birding on a weekend. I am free to go during the week when there are less people around, so I see no need to compete. So on Saturdays I will post a few random thoughts and perhaps a picture or two from the week. Warning the pictures won't always be of birds!

Why is one clump of bushes full of birds, and the next has none?
Why do birds always land on the back of the tree trunk, defying identification? Are they perverse or just shy?
Do we consider some birds obnoxious because of their song, or does their song just add to their obnoxiousness? i.e. Grackles
