Our Changing World
The only constant is change, for better and for worse.
Why I Live in Duluth
What drew Laura and her husband Russ to Duluth in 1981?
How can it be spring before winter even arrives?
Death of a New York Celebrity: Flaco the Owl
Flaco the Eurasian Eagle-Owl whose enclosure in the Central Park Zoo was vandalized, leading to his escape on February 2, 2023, died Friday.
Mission Accomplished: Fieldfare!!
Laura headed back to Prentice Park in Ashland on Wednesday and this time saw (and got VERY bad photos) of the Fieldfare.
Chickadee with a Deformed Bill
On Tuesday, Laura suddenly noticed a chickadee with a badly overgrown, crossed bill at her feeder.
Late Hummingbirds at feeder
Enjoy your podcast so much. I too have had some surprise hummingbirds this past weekend. I keep changing the nectar in my last two feeders I have kept out. I shout through the window. “Head south little one, frost is coming”
Wit, wisdom and vast knowledge of the avian world make this woman a must hear!
Thank you for airing Laura over the years!
It’s a pleasure
Really enjoy this as a supplement to my daily bird watching on my feeders.
