First of all thank you to everyone who has subscribed to BLW – this blog has nearly 3000 followers which is amazing. I hope you will move with me to the new site.
BLW is moving to www.birdlightwind.com.
You have three options.
1. The easiest one is to “Like” the BLW Facebook page. I set it up in the right margin so you can just click once, and rest assured you still get your BLW in a timely way.
2. You can update your RSS reader with the following address: http://www.birdlightwind.com
or 3. Just visit birdlightwind.com from time to time.
Unfortunately subscription is no longer an option so if you want to stick with me you’ve got to make the move too.
Also, please continue to enjoy this site as an archive. It has 374 posts for your perusal.

I learned that iTunes sells gift cards which makes Bird Knowledge a great digital stocking stuffer too.
There are also a few video clips in the book too. The image below is just a sample. You have to get the book to see the little owl do his thing. Thank you everyone!
Nature is gross… (and super interesting). This Red-billed Oxpecker, who also loves ear wax and keeping scabs from fully forming so it can feast on blood and tissue, seems particularly attuned to the digestive timing of giraffes. It flew down from the beast’s neck within seconds of this process starting so it could have its pick of the ticks that inhabit this usually inaccessible region. Yup, gross… and interesting.
Bird Light Wind… keeping it real since 2008.

Here is a little VIDEO I made with the Vine app to give you a feeling for the day.
One way to tell where the shallow areas are while kayaking is to look for the gulls near shore. They float within quick reach of the scurrying crabs below and pluck up the brave or careless. Then a quick flight to the sand to de-leg and consume its prize.
