A Bird's Eye View

I frequently mention my very suburban neighborhood and some of the neat birds we see around our house. Microsoft's Live Search Maps has a neat bird's eye view capability and now, through the power of Bill Gates, I am able to show you the sea of townhomes and condos that is my neighborhood.


This is pretty much how everything within one mile of our house looks. The little arrow is pointing to our building and our house is right under the orange square. The strip of green in the bottom left corner is the retention pond where a Belted Kingfisher and Great Blue Heron hangs out sometimes. Lord knows what they're eating in there. I think that white circle is a fountain. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the number of trees we have in our area. If you're bored, post your map on your blog!

Too bad you couldn't check google maps to see where all the birds are at! If the Eagles on the nest or if the Tundra Swans are over at the swamp! Maybe just one day we could do this?

Awesome, I just spent 30 minutes looking at our map... Wish I could fly over the area like an eagle. Heck I'd settle for a House Sparrow if I could cruise around for the day.
