Right now I am enjoying the heck out of watching the hummingbird version of Star Wars. Like Jedi fighters they are ZOOMING each other, chirping away like made. I love cardinals too. I refuse to stop feeding my bird friends even when the bears raid the feeders at night (but bears are pretty entertaining too!).
When I was in grad school, my cat, Little Mao caught a hermit thrush. I tried to save it but it was too late. But the body was not mangled so I took it to the university’s vertebrate museum. Here they did not have this particular species so they asked if they could have it. I said sure and had to fill out a speciment tag about who obtained the specimen and where. I put down the specimen was obtained by Little Mao and the location – my backyard!
