Updates affecting entries #6 and #11 (Red-bellied woodpecker and great blue heron) on the 25th of February.
The blog is coming out of hibernation! I must continue to add entries to the Field Guide and do lots and lots of research!
Also, I've added an index for the Field Guide so that it is easier to find all the different kinds of plants and animals and the like. I also plan to do some studies eventually, and that will be put at the bottom of the index.
It's good when I don't procrastinate so long that nothing is posted here. Anyway, I am going to continue the note method and also make a sort of field guide. I already started the field guide, but I will put it under its own category so that all the information about plants and birds and animals can be found. If I ever have any.
I will try to post something every week on Tuesday. Maybe I won't get to another entry in the field guide, but I will try to post my notes if that fails. Speaking of that, did I mention that the birds prefer peanut suet over berry but also like the suet facing out towards the woods?
Picture 48, which I said was probably a garter snake, was in fact, a garter snake; a western ribbon snake, to be more specific.
My very first post about a bird: summer tanagers. Well, I got a picture of a juvenile, and I figured out that the females are not green. On scarlet tanagers I do still think they are.
So, they're really more of a pale orange or yellow sort of color, and the juveniles I guess tend to have red tints here and there, foreshadowing their days of glorious redness. For example, this juvenile down here. Do you see his red above his eyes? A little bit of red-orange in his feathers?
I have no pictures of the females. Only this juvenile, which was mistaken for a female goldfinch. But it was not. I'm pretty sure I've seen some with Terrence, though. Emily reports that Norman found himself one, too.
I like observing animals, especially birds. I also take care of the goats. I like goats.
My assistant photographer! She also takes care of African geese.
Another assistant photographer! She takes care of the rabbits, and the hutch is teeming with crawly things.
