Long time, no see. Baby bird season is in full swing here too. Our center is filled to the rafters with orphaned and injured babies. It's exhausting really but great when they're all better and released. I have 2 baby skunks at home right now. Not sure if I posted the picture on my profile page. Maybe. The Gulf situation is horrid. And the oil is still pouring out. I can't even guess at the long term impact. There comes that tipping point where things can't recover, ever. And the Gulf is so rich with wildlife. Seems the politics and finger pointing have taken center stage, not solutions. For now, we'll enjoy and appreciate our own corners of the world. Hope you are doing well. irene
Yep, pretty disgusting how some folks like to prove how powerful they are by shooting animals for kicks (hunting for food is different). My boss has been working hard to increase the penalties for such things. We had some people (racing pigeon owners) that would sit and shoot hawks/peregrines for fun. I know they don't want peregrines grabbing their fancy pigeons but it's the nature of the birds. Have to find some compromise, not just kill everything. We get a fair amount of gun shot birds in the center, all kinds of birds from hawks to crows, to gulls. Doesn't seem to matter. I hope the eagle heals well. We just released an eagle Sunday. Had injured knee from territorial dispute with another eagle. Hope you're doing well. irene
It's not unusual for some hummers to overwinter in an area. In the NW we have Anna's all year round. The Rufous hummers leave. I keep a feeder up for the Anna's. Last year was sooo cold and snowy I set up a heating pad with the feeder sitting on it. All that was set up higher on a rehab cage I use for wildlife. That way the food stayed thawed and the hummer had a warm place to sit. It stayed through the whole wicked week we had. I'd love to invest in a porcelain heat lamp. They're expensive but radiate a lot of warm without all the bright light. I should put it on my Christmas list. :-) irene
No fermentation? Yeah, right. I've heard that before - soak the beans and then rinse them several times before cooking. But that would take away part of the fun of eating beans. Toot- aloo. Have a good day.
