When it comes to working long days, the junco is champ. Up before dawn,. even today, in windy rain. Last to bed before owl time. Speaking of owl, check bottom of this blog…video of one of those BIG ONES I follow.

Ho-hum, juncos. More now that it’s cold and snowy in Cascades. But wait, that’s our star guest:

I am pleased that our lone white-throat comes right to the window…must be those sunflower chips…bet he doesn’t get those up in Alaska.

Finches: gang of American, house up close, single lesser (daily they are scarce because of the bigger Americans), then squirrel gorging. It is he that is upside down, not camera nor image. Only small monkeys can compete with squirrel aerobatics.

Lee French’s GGO video from today in southern Cascades, click here. You will notice that the GGO refuses to notice the fussing chickadees. If that had been a chattering vole of the same bulk…

Climate change. Science says we can do it. Politics says we will not. A look at where we are with climate change, greenhouse gases, rising temps and rising anger–click here.
