Kramer the Kingfisher

Yesterday’s Phenology: A nice thunderstorm rolled through yesterday evening and into the night, and the day following was cloudy with periods of rain and in about the 70s range. Nice. The evening cleared and turned sunny. Things are pretty quiet on the Phenology front. Nobody here is enjoying the warmth and the humidity.

Song of the day: The Mama’s and the Papa’s, Twelve-thirty


red-winged blackbird – morning call

Yesterday’s Phenology: A sudden moment of nice weather. Cloudy all day, and the temperature peaked I think in the upper 60s. Delightful. Noticed a couple of large sized birds flying together above the river early this morning. No idea what they were. Eagles? Possible, but too far away to say.

Song of the day: Tom Waits, Blue Valentines


Kingfisher, keeping an eye on things

Yesterday’s Phenology: Warmish and Humidish. Noticed a parade of Canadian Geese marching out of our parking lot at work and up the hill to the pond. It was as if a tour bus had pulled up and let them out. They rather seemed like they were going to work.

Song of the day: Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington, It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t got that Swing


blackbird on guard

Yesterday’s Phenology: Warmish, but mostly cloudy, which kept it from being hotish, I suppose. Saw the usual birds, and a few interesting bugs that I couldn’t identify, other than to say, coleoptra, probably. One of them may have been a youthful Japanese beetle. I bet.

Song of the day: The Mamas & The Papas, Monday Monday
