In case you have not heard, we’re buried under an old school blizzard dumping up here. The local weather folk were predicting with barely restrained glee the potential for a massive storm. And though many of us have heard in the Twin Cities that we could get 1 – 2 feet of snow, many [...]
Well, we’re about to get Snomaggedon in the Twin Cities this weekend (12 inches with blizzard conditions). The birds are going bonkers at the feeders so I set out the Wingscapes camera to grab some images.
The jaunty blue jay is loving the crumpled up peanut suet mixed with black-oil sunflower seeds.
Wow, what a great Monday–we might hit 40 degrees (do I dare take out my bike), I’m going to learn how to ice fish today and I just came off a fun weekend. I have to put in a plug for my Twin Cities readers:
Non Birding Bill’s birthday was the day I flew to [...]
Dear Non Birding Bill,
We’ve given this whole marriage thing one heck of a try. I’m a birder, you’re not and hilarity ensues, we’ve put in a good eleven years and are closing in on 12–we’ve given it the old college try. However, after spending some time in Panama, I regret to inform you that [...]

So, I just filmed an interview with WCCO while in Panama via Skype. It’s for the “Good Question” series and will air tonight at 10pm. I love it. Thanks to the wonders of technology, I sat in the bathroom at Canopy Lodge and answered crow questions over the intertubes. Thanks WCCO for making me feel [...]
For those like my mother who lives in Indianapolis (who are getting Rainmageddon) and cannot experience the white Christmas we are enjoying in the Twin Cities, I thought I’d put out my Wingscapes cam to get some photos of birds and the falling snow. I forgot that I had it set to take video, so [...]
