Okay, I got one picture to upload so I'm in the mood. Here's a picture of an oil slick created as bunker oil still leaks from the USS Arizona after over 68 years. No picture I've ever taken (or even seen) captures the emotions one feels at the memorial.

I've been to the memorial a dozen times and hope I live to visit another couple dozen times. The colors were especially vibrant the day this pic was taken. Surrealistic on many levels.

Woodpecker hawking up woodchips. Look closely, you can see the spray of itsy-bitsy chips.

A couple of peacocks decided that like the view from my front door. Of course the cats ignored them.

I've never understood how such a beautiful bird can have such foul (so to speak) behavior.

Used to see herds, er, flocks, er gaggles of the filthy beasts terrorizing Temple Valley. See also

Can't recall if this has been resolved. In a vacuum, I'd side with the peacock. Having dealt with them, I can kinda see an insanity defense.

You'd think the local media would be stalking this story, but it's kinda dropped off the radar. Even a plea bargain would be news.

Not a very sympathetic character (the peacock killer, not the animal). Maybe she's moved to Vegas...

Spring is in the air, tra-la, tra-la.

I have no idea what today's visitor to our garden is. Somebody said immature Lesser Goldfinch and somebody else said rubbish.

Actually, this used to perk my attention also. I would, in the spring, have a number of bright yellow birds invade out yard. The coloring was such that I thought they were Canaries. They would hang around for a very short time (a week maybe) and then disappear. Then my brother told me that they were common Purple Finches in their mating plumage. The picture you posted shows this change taking place.

Look like male lesser goldfinch in transition to me (look at that head turning black). But Audrey is the expert.

Every spring yellow-crowned night herons migrate from the coast to nest in Austin neighborhoods. Actually, their nests are pretty lame. It is surprising they hold together at all.
Spring must be here, as they have returned and set up housing-keeping again.
