It’s Official: We are Now Acting Like Old People
We took a big step today toward acting our age. So far we have avoided dressing like old people, eating at the early bird specials, wearing cardigan sweaters, etc. etc. But today, we made the leap into bird watching. Nancy even bought Birds of Kentucky.
UPDATE: Killed the live video! Too much hassle, too few birds!
We moved a bird feeder so it’s in the line of sight as the computer monitor. We kept it filled with birdseed all summer long and the word is getting around that we are a nice place to hang.
Yahoo Live (the host for the cam) is giving up on December 3 and shutting down, so unless I find another place to host the live cam (any ideas?) this will all disappear then.
In the meantime, you can look out our window anytime on THIS page.
UPDATE: I’m going to try to set up UStream for hosting video. So this post may be off and on. I’ll keep the other page linked above on Yahoo Live.
Have you seen these awesome puppies? When it is live – it is a hoot! Lively round mounds of energy!
Dude! I am a birdin’ fool and have been since I was in kindergarten. So Cal, for all it sucks, has a great range of egrets, herons, hawks and hummingbirds. I refuse to learn the sandpipers and gulls because they all look alike. This must make me some sort of bird racist.
Next time you see a robin, bluejay or oriole, kiss ’em for me. Because we are too weird to get them here. Also, I have several ideas for low to no-cost homemade bird feeders, if you want. You want to feed them the millet with the sunflower seeds interspersed, or perhaps some suet if you’ve got peckers (HEE) or flickers.
@Gretchen: Robins live here year around! Big ole bluejays have hung around the feeder. No orioles yet. Lot of finches. I just now filled it up with sunflower seeds because they are good for all the above as well as tits.
We have had a pecker – on the tree! Also have added suet, so we’ll see what happens.
