Travelling, Travelling…

Off to the Great White North, hopefully to spot a snowy owl (or at least not get snowed in.) It’s a whirlwind business/birding trip, so I’m getting minimal socializing in, but we’ll almost certainly be back later this year, and hopefully can do more hanging out.

In the meantime, I am now Ready For Spring. I was mulching in Hello Kitty pajamas yesterday. (Yes, that will be the title of my memoir.) My brain would like to get into Serious Gardening Mode now. I am being forced to read gardening books to stay sane. They aren’t helping.

Spring, damn you!

You know there's a snowy owl irruption going on right now, right? My folks saw NINE on the coast in Washington state this weekend, and the cornell ornithology tracker is marking sightings all over. One was seen in Honolulu.

Not sure if that means it was lost, or the smartest snowy owl ever. "Screw this tundra shit. I'mma go to Hawaii!"

It may be the only smart owl out there, then - the rest are a bit dumb. ("No, you idiot bird, you're supposed to land on my wrist. Not my head") (There are advantages to wearing a leather hat.)

And being the only smart one for thousands of miles means it's not going to be passing those genes on.
