A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

there is a book called "how to be a bad bird watcher" that encourages (not necessarily geriatric) people to try birdwatching.

Trouble, you need to come join me for the AMNH bird walk in the Ramble in Central Park in the fall! Saw lots of great birds.

Trouble, I get to be a Librarian sometimes too. I tagged along to an AMIA (Association of Moving Images) conference in in Savannah a few year back. It was fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am ausmanx:

you need kookaburras in New Jersey. now THAT's a serious bird (in terms of temperament...). good evening, all
  9:50am JS:

Loving the bird talk, Trouble!

I get that "I hate birds" comment all the time, by the way . . . to which I always like to appose one of my favorite provocations, from a fellow ecocritic: "hating nature may be more ethical than loving it."

Anyways, here I am in England, starting all over again with the local birds. Lots of robins and (very articulate) blackbirds!

Isn't ironic how those refuges are constructed around the car, how we disturb the birds least by staying *in* our cars? The upstate Montezuma Wildlife Refuge works that way, too.

Of course, we'd disturb the birds the least by not visiting their refuges at all, but then, without awareness and interest, and without hunters, the refuges probably wouldn't exist, so . . . it's complicated!

Montezuma is also well worth a visit, btw. Saw huge flocks of snow geese there earlier this spring, when I was visiting.

Thanks for the great tunes, as always. & hello from across the Atlantic.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am Rob & Katie:

Lovely NJ bird rap... even with the dissenting disciple...
  9:52am JS:

Oh, by the way, one reason birding-land tends to be populated with retirees is that the best birding, during migration season, happens when working folks are busiest -- and if you are into it, you tend to stay out for hours. It's hard to go in once you've started down the warbler path. (Grad school was my alibi.) Those birds don't punch a 9 to 5 clock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59am tim from champaign:

Trouble, have you ever been to Point Pelie, Ontario? It's the isthmus that juts into Lake Erie. That's a fantastic place for checking out birds.
Avatar 10:03am Trouble:

edwin forsythe wildlife refuge in absecon nj is the place to go for gorgeous birding, NJ nature moment!!!

hey rob and katie!! no tim i haven't, that sounds awesome too!

Kinks! Who had a "hit" with sleep. Heard it here by somebody else recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am tim from champaign:

I think the 1st 2 Pretenders albums are incredible rock records. I'm not sure why those records haven't got their due.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am tim from champaign:

Oops. I forgot Sleep was a Kinks song before Pretenders covered it.

Doog Morning DJ Trouble, B23 here! Did I miss all of the bird talk?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29am braveness23:

I could use some help naming a couple of my chickens. I've tried for years to raise Plymouth Barred Rocks but they always seem to get killed by the other chickens. They just didn't defend themselves in the day to day hen pecking. Now I have two beautiful Plymouths that are old and large enough that they aren't gonna take any shit from any of the other birds. But they are still unnamed. I am thinking some kind of jail theme since they are black and white striped. If I had a rooster it would be Johnny Cash. Any girl/jail names come to mind?
Avatar 10:33am Trouble:

june carter! or june carter cash if you are feeling formal...and trixie sounds fairly bad ass. although if you are feeling historical priscilla is quite fitting

Monsanto is being sued in Kansas because their wheat is showing up in places it hasn't been planted. Treating GM crops like they are a product and not biology won't work. Seeds spread no matter what, insects change; evolution may not be smarter than technology but it's a hell of a lot more relentless. I'll get off my soapbox and go back to listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51am tim from champaign:

Andrew, I think I heard a Satie "Gymnopaedie" (sp?) in the Dump cut.

like that chicken sample in there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- right arm, Duke. No way can you keep a field of plants completely isolated. A child could see that. I presume Monsanto does too - they just want to press whatever legal advantage they can for as long as they can...
