Another day another refinement to "Piedmont Region of North Carolina" on OPUS

Posted Wednesday 1st July 2020 at 10:28 by sbarnhardt
I am enjoying this "journey" that is creating the OPUS entry for the Piedmont Region of North Carolina.

While, yes, there is "always something to do", I find myself enjoying the doing of it.

I have some wonderful guidance in my work on it and for that I'm eternally grateful. I won't call them out here because I don't know, either way, if that's a kind of thing they appreciate. So to be on the safe side, I'll hold off. But should you read...

Cuckoo, cuckoo, farewell, farewell

Actually, the cuckoo in question showed some development to his call, with three notes of the scale (Me, ray, do) from time to time.

Haven't heard him for some days now, so I presume he has started the journey south.

Meanwhile, work has started on the bird pool, already the local sparrows are appreciating a source of water in the hot weather

It's Saturday morning (GMT - 4/5 hours), June 27th, 2020 here in the "Ol' North State", aka North Carolina, in the US.

I'm "knee-deep" into putting together a section/page on Opus relating to my particular portion of NC (An abbreviation for North Carolina for those of you not in the US and maybe not familiar with our usage.).

I've read Wikipedia and related sites before and knew they were user edited, but had never attempted it. Well, now I'm...

What ever have I gotten myself into?

Posted Wednesday 24th June 2020 at 17:27 by sbarnhardt
Well, to paraphrase an old "Laurel & Hardy" quote.......

Well here's another fine mess I've gotten into!

To elaborate and "try" to explain myself, let me start by saying birding is a fine thing I've gotten into. A "mess"? Not in the usual sense, you might think of when that word is used, but a "mess", as in a lot, of things to learn.

I've stuck my fingers into several different paths over the years. Not...

Cuckoo, Cuckoo, Say what do you do?

Posted Tuesday 9th June 2020 at 08:49 by kennethwfd
Resident cuckoo still in song, flew over me at close range. I wonder for how much longer.

Modern tracking devices have shown that the old nursery rhyme is not always accurate. Last year, one individual came to Beaulieu on cue, but began the journey south two months later, on 16 June crossed the channel, and spent the next three months migrating south.

Any cuckoos in August in GB are usually born this year making a slow start to migrate
