Purgatory

At the Birdbath

Yes, I’m still very behind on posts, but I really am working on that — albeit very slowly.

On the suggestion of a neighbor I took one of my field cameras and set it up at the bird bath in the north garden. The results of the second test were quite amusing, so I compiled a video of some of the action and tossed it up on our Youtube channel.

On a related note, I’m now up to 58 species of birds sighted here at the ranch. Most of which I’ve managed to document over at stega.org.
