martyc35 09/25/11 02:58 pm and others. Great diary on banding & id-ing sharpies.
I've been largely missing around here, but it's just been internet connections and back pain. Will all be better soon, I think. Enjoy Lineatus's work.

Celeste 09/26/11 01:50 pm Learned a lot! always look forward to this Marty, and I do hope you will be feeling better soon!
Melanie 09/27/11 02:10 pm Did you notice the color on those eyes?
martyc35 09/28/11 01:23 pm Yes, they are astounding, and I enjoyed Lineatus' explanation of how the color stages match their maturation process. Didn't know that before.

Getting much better here. My internet connection seems stable now, and so does my spine after a new injection yesterday. If anyone out there is wondering whether epidurals are helpful for spinal stenosis, my answer is yes, yes, and so far, no heavy back surgery. I'm happy, and pain free at last.

martyc35 09/29/11 12:38 pm Wow. A sharp-shinned visited me yesterday! Around 4 in the afternoon, and the Steller's jays were coming for a few peanuts I had put out for them, when a warning crow kept flying through between the house and the feeders. The crow never tried to land and take the peanuts, just kept doing these fly-bys, so I went over to the windows to see what was going on, when the hawk flew down and landed briefly under the feeders, then made a run for a bluejay but of course did not get it. I went outside and sat in a chair near the area, and there was the hawk, up in my fir tree, waiting for another chance. When it finally spotted me sitting down there, it took off, rather spitefully, flying through the space between the house and feeders, right in front of me, but it did leave. It will be back, i have no doubt. Beautiful bird. Didn't get a look at his eyes, though, as he was pretending I was not there and refused to look at me.
