Unfortunately last Thursday I woke with something seriously wrong with my back. Standing & walking for any real length of time are suddenly out. Fortunately I managed to get X-rays yesterday. I probably won't be doing much blogging/visiting until this is fixed. Apologies in advance. (Update, Apr. 2010; It turned out that I'd herniated 2 discs in my back, but I'm all better now.)
Here's a picture of a blue jay fledgling in our backyard;
Did you know that the blue jays' fondness for acorns and their accuracy in choosing and burying good ones are credited with spreading oak trees after the last glacial period?
I also forgot to mention that I saw my first great crested flycatcher out back about a month ago. In addition, our local group of 7 crows recently became 10.
In yet other news, another one of my photos was featured on the front page of the St. Tammany News on July 1st.
In yet even other news, the Int'l Space Station will be making some passes over the US in the coming days. Click through the link to see when to keep your eyes on the skies!
