Interests & Passions

Just a quick note to let you all know I am taking the day to relax and unwind. After the events of this past week, I really need to take a day to decompress, get my bearings, and charge my batteries. Literally.

As most of you who frequent my site already know, I enjoy keeping track of our elected officials and writing about politics is one of my favorite things to do. But you might not know that I have two other passions. Photography and birding. I know I have mentioned a birding trip here and there, and I have posted a few photographs when we’ve seen some bird that’s really cool.

So, it should come as no suprise that I have added a birding category to the site, as well as a few really good birding links. All of you people who follow my political rants will have to put up with a few birding posts from time to time, and you birders will have to deal with those political rants in-between all of my birding stories.

Okay, that’s it for tonight, except… What the heck is that bird sitting on the bouy?

 

Click on the image to enlarge it. I can’t figure out if it’s a Double Crested Cormorant with weird white coloring or some other bird. Okay, so my newbie-ness of birding is showing, but I don’t care. I can’t learn if I don’t ask questions, now help me out. What is it?

One thought on “Interests & Passions

  1. There is no better mix than birding and politics Michael! Well, add a little gardening, dogs and motorcycles and that’s pretty much my life! 🙂
    I would say you’ve just got some immature DC Cormorants here with the adults. I’m not the best at the shore birds but that’s my guess. What bird books do you have? My favorite are Sibley’s and National Geographic. Also the Thayer’s Fieldguide software for your computer is a wonderful resource for bird songs too.
    I love your Historic Documents links…they are my favorites!
