And here we are again with our recurring random birds post. No distinct narrative here, no musings on life and birds. This post is just cool shit that I've seen around lately; shit that won't fit into its own post. I think the idea of the potpourri post, if you will, is a good metaphor for a monthly cleansing. Not necessarily like a juice cleanse or anything. Maybe purging is a better term. You know, you go to work, pay your bills, feed yourself, shit like that for a month. You can easily get lost in the rut of that world. But then, every once in while, you go out and tie one on. Stay up way too late drinking with your buddies, and spend the next day recovering. It can be great, brutal, or both at the same time. But the next day, you get up, feel like death, and use that as a reason to get your shit together. And then you're good for another month. Regain perspective, remember what's important to you, rinse and repeat until the next time. Maybe that's just me, or maybe it's a mid 30's thing. No idea. Anyways, I recognize that tying that concept into a post about random birds is quite a stretch, but I've got stream of consciousness thing going here, so that's how it's going to be.
And now...onto the birds.
|American Bittern - Ah, who doesn't love this bird? Rarely generous with the looks, this bird was an exception to the rule.|
|Easy bird for most who wanted it. Spent about a week giving good looks in the evenings.|
|The last thing many a frog will ever see.|
|Burrowing Owl - life bird for Dude, who you may remember from the last post.|
|Ring-billed Gull - I don't understand what it was doing with its wings. It looked very uncomfortable.|
|Ash-throated Flycatcher - weird overwintering bird. Wasn't expecting a Myiarchus on my year list in January.|
|Short-eared Owl - shit picture of a cool bird.|
|Great Horned Owl|
