late 20th century dyno

Yesterday’s Phenology: A cloudy day that looked like it intended to rain, but hasn’t yet. Flickers in the trees are pecking away, looking for food, I suppose. Or perhaps just something to do.

Song of the day: George Harrison, It’s Johnny’s Birthday / Plug Me In

Yesterday’s Phenology: Had a nice thunderstorm last night, and it rained into the morning. Delightful. Afterwards breezy and warmed up to the 80s and muggy.

Song of the day:¬†Grateful Dead, Not fade Away, Goin’ Down the Road Feeling Bad



yet another red-winged black bird…

Yesterday’s Phenology: Fifty-one degrees when I got up; not your usual late June weather in this part of Minnesota. And it was a cool and partly cloudy day, in the low 70s. Saw quite a few dogs out walking their people this evening, after dinner.

Song of the day: Eric Burdon and the Animals, Monterey

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another perfect day, partly sunny, with a high of maybe 70? A tad breezy, but just plain nice, really. Went to the dogpark, saw many dogs, including a deerhound that looked like a bit of a cross between a borzoi and an Irish Wolfhound. Saw a kingfisher kingfishing, and perhaps some mature redstarts flitting about in the trees.

Song of the day: Mississippi John Hurt, Monday Morning Blues


Bird o’ the Day (warbler? redstart?)

Yesterday’s Phenology: In the upper 50s at the beginning of the day, and probably didn’t crack the 70s. A few little passing thundershowers, but the day was mostly just cool and breezy and cloudy. Lot’s o’ wee bunnies hoppin’ about, enjoying the north-shore weather.

Song of the Day: Malcolm Dalglish, Gray Larson, Banish Misfortune
