Red-shouldered hawk: Radnor Lake, Nashville

August 8th, 2012 · Comments Off on Red-shouldered hawk: Radnor Lake, Nashville · bird identification

During today’s hike, Steve D. and I were treated to a close-up viewing of a previously injured Red-shouldered hawk (a broken left wing, I believe) now being raised by the staff at Radnor Lake in Nashville, Tennessee. “Red” — Red is my nickname for the redheaded park ranger girl I see more often than any […]

Nashville Bird Feeders: First Visitors

NOTE: The ‘wild’ rooster was sighted on April 12, 2010… One might assume that, after hiking the relatively short but sweet 1.6-mile Roger’s Walk trail a few times (at Nashville’s Ellington Agricultural Center), one has seen about all there is to see in terms of wildlife.

Nature Sounds Library: Pert as a Ruttin’ Buck

July 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on Nature Sounds Library: Pert as a Ruttin’ Buck · bird identification

Monday, July 20, 2009 “I feel as pert as a ruttin’ buck.” That’s one of the classic lines from Clint Eastwood’s Outlaw Josey Wales, which is playing as I type this…definitely one of my favorite westerns — not that there are many westerns I could even name.
