The catbird probably has a tiny netbook and is writing up a blog post about you right now.

And get that coffee cup away from your keyboard!


Link, you're probably right, but don't you mean nestbook?


"I refrained," he said with dignity.


Yahoo’s telling me it’s fifty-four degrees here, although I’m not sure where Yahoo thinks here is.

For my Delaware county house, Yahoo gives me weather in Binghamton. Which is sort of accurate, except that Binghamton is a good five hundred feet below my altitude so is usually milder and less windy, which really only sort of helps me.

And wouldn't "apps" for birds be "twigs"?


I tea-ed my keyboard this week. Took it all apart but it had gotten into the wiring.

There has been a lot of bird mating activity here (VT) the last few weeks. Well that, or there is some kind of war on. The mourning doves go at it in threes, slapping their wings on each others as they go from tree to tree, it is very loud and violent sounding, like hands clapping hard. I keep expecting someone (somebird?) to fall down injured. Two grackles were doing it sedately on the grass. Well, sedate in action but not in noise. There is hourly bird porn here, and I keep my pocket sized field glasses with me so that I can get a good view. Nature lover or pervert, you decide.

I have been leaving dryer lint on the porch and it always gets stolen, it makes a cushy nest. I remember when my son was in h.s. and he had very long hair that was dyed a different color every few weeks. One day when getting into the car he stopped to pull the hair out of his brush, and tossed a big wad of multicolored hair onto the driveway. In the fall I saw a nest with this multicolored wad making up a good third of the nest.

Our spring this year they say is 20 days early. But there was a killing frost on the apple blossoms, who were fooled. Time will tell if there is a crop at all. Macintoshes were especially hard hit as they are early.

But there are a lot more flowers on my strawberries than usual, and I am getting a little tired of asparagus I have gotten so much. Oh poor me.

Since we're going that migratory route, a boid with a cell phone would have a boid droid.
