My five favorite birds, over at @Orion_Magazine. Yes, they are common, but important not to take anything for granted. If I had to chose among the five, it would be summer tanager. One of whom was just pushing a brown thrasher off the bark butter cup.
@bombsfall @mtrc Thanks for the erroneous plug all the same! <3 But you should check out the art of @kathleenneeley instead! Phenomenally deft, beautiful, surreal linocuts. I wish I had either the control or the patience. I particularly like this one:
A Sea-Serpent Swallows The Royal Fleet, Arts of the Book: Illustrated Texts, Miniatures, India, Mughal, circa 1670 AD, Materials and technique: Ink, opaque watercolor and gold on paper. Read more: https://t.co/vl1nplWFF5
It is shitty when “liberal” folks are like “can you imagine living in [ insert name of southern state]?” Like, yes - I can? Lots of people deserving of political representation do.
How to explain to a foreigner that one party in the US controls the federal government while the minority party is openly using its control of some regional govts to rig the upcoming election against the party in power and the party in power can stop it but just isn’t bothering.
In case you missed it, I made a poster of female birds, inspired by Female Bird Day (https://t.co/FTQZQoMTro). For the next 3 months, half of all proceeds go to the Black and Latinx Birders Scholarship (https://t.co/cVqHCZ8x1e). You can buy it here: https://t.co/i5WluSOZJv
This is why @OklaHouseDems have continually called for funding public safety agencies through general revenue, not fines & fees.
Had some great luck finding beetles yesterday - in order: Brachys ovatus (metallic wood-boring beetle), Curculio sp weevil, Helocassis clavata (Clavate Tortoise Beetle), Cicindela sexguttata (Six-spotted Tiger Beetle) #coleoptera #beetles #oklahoma
Over the weekend ~15 California condors descended on my moms house and absolutely trashed her deck. They still haven’t left. It sucks but also this is unheard of, there’s only 160 of these birds flying free in the state and a flock of them decided to start a war with my mom 😭
