Nature Blog Network Featured Blog and SNOW!


Thanks so much to Wren for choosing me as the featured blog on the Nature Blog Network this week.

In other news, it's a snowy day here in NJ. It's our first and hopefully last substantial snowfall of the year. Beth and I both had "snow days" although I worked the whole day. Sometimes having high-speed remote access to work is not a good thing.

The feeders were hopping today thanks to the snow. We usually only have one male Downy Woodpecker visit, but today a female joined him. I wasn't able to get a pic, but she did have a very dark belly which was interesting. Also, I had a record high count of goldfinches for my yard of 12. Yeah, I know some of you get 12 fighting over one post on your feeder, but it's great for condo-land here. Lots of MoDos and Juncos too. The MoDos enjoyed hiding from the snow on our porch as seen above.

I really enjoyed reading your mini-interview on NBN. I had never seen one of those before so it was nice to read and learn more about you and how you got into blogging, what keeps you motivated, etc.

I am so hoping you are right and this is the last of the snow. High speed cable and VPN through work have kept me awake many weekend with work related projects so I feel your pain.

Nice pictures of the mourning doves.
