The Killdeer Saga, Part 2

I began to write in my earlier blog, "The Killdeer Saga," about the "triumphs, trials, and tribulations" of a Money Point, Chesapeake, VA Killdeer family. I followed the family and took copious photos of the family from early March, when their nesting season usually begins around here, until the end of May. For Killdeer, the … Continue reading The Killdeer Saga, Part 2

The Killdeer Saga

The last couple of blogs on the Osprey were writing marathons. They took a lot of time and effort to put together. And they were lengthy. This, the first of 2 blogs on the Killdeer, will be more like a 5K fast walk instead. But before we get down to business and begin to consider … Continue reading The Killdeer Saga

Osprey Country, Part 2

Let me begin in the same way in which I ended "Osprey Country." What a joy it is to blog and to share my thoughts and my photos with readers in this way.

I’ve had … Continue reading Farewell and Not Goodbye

Back to Basics

There's a wonderful old "Far Side" cartoon featuring a dog, Ginger, and its owner. The owner says to the dog, "OK, Ginger! I've had it! You stay out of the garbage! Understand, Ginger? Stay out of the garbage, or else!" But all the dog hears is, "Blah, blah, blah, Ginger. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, … Continue reading Back to Basics

The Thrill of a Lifetime

I wrote in an earlier blog, "Back to Flying," about "rusty pilots." Well, yours truly is a "rusty writer." I haven't posted a blog in almost 2 weeks. Yikes! But I have an excuse. My wife and I did, indeed, as planned, go to Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in AZ to join up with the … Continue reading The Thrill of a Lifetime
