Miscellany

Following is a really, really bad segue that should be avoided by every responsible radio dj, but that I heard anyhow yesterday:

"Ohio" by Crosby, Stills and Nash
followed up by
"Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen.
Auugghh!!!

As last weekend was the Great Backyard Bird Count, I submit the stats from our backyard feeders:

Saturday, 2/14--1:45-2 pm

dark-eyed juncos-15+
goldfinches-2
northern cardinals-2 (a pair)
Carolina wren-1
chipping sparrow-1
tufted timouse-1
Carolina chickadee-1
white-throated sparrows-2
house finches-2, both males
mourning doves-3

Sunday, 2/15--around 9:30 am

goldfinches-6
chipping sparrows-3
dark-eyed junco-1
Carolina chickadee-1
Carolina wren-1
tufted titmouse-1
house finches-2 (the guys again)

To my chagrin, the great thundering herds of assorted finches and the yellow-rumped warbler didn't show themselves until Monday, after the official count ended.
