American Black Vulture

American Black Vulture

You hardly ever have a chance to get a good, close look at one of these buzzards, because they are so wary, skittish, cautious and intelligent. I mean think about it – you’ve seen dead deer, dogs, cats, coons, possums, snakes, turtles, blackbirds and other redneck delicacies lying in the road, but when have you ever seen a dead buzzard on the road? I would say never! They’re too smart. They’re kind of sweet, too.

I went to Dollywood a couple of years ago, and a guy had one tethered to his wrist. He would play with it, scratch its head and generally love around on it. It was quite touching. He told us that if we would try to love around on it, the sweet thang would most likely bite our fingers off. Hmmph. I didn’t believe him, but I didn’t want to actually prove him wrong either. Call me chicken if you want to, but the way these birds rip and tear meat out of road kill…

Speaking of road kill, I’ve always poked a little good natured fun at people who eat road kill, but I always forget this one little incident that happened way back when. You see, my stepfather is a Cajun and has been known to stop and pick up what he had just hit, since its freshness was thusly guaranteed. This, however, was unbeknownst to me at the time he married my mom.

Anyway, one evening I arrived home late from a school field trip to find the house deserted and a pot of deliciously smelling pork (I presumed) stew on the stove. Being a growing, strapping, young lad, I consumed half the pot with gusto. I went to bed and was awakened later by sounds of laughter and something about “turtle on the road” and “ran over” and "he almost ate it all!"

What happened was this: Mr. “Hit-it-nab-it-throw-it-in-a-pot” had chased down (or at the very least just ran over) a turtle, turned around, picked it up, went home, cleaned it and threw it in a pot without leaving me a warning note! Like I was some redneck kid that you could just shovel road kill at! My proper, English ancestors would turn in their graves and wee their Earl Grey tea! I was bred for better than that!!!

But do you know the worst thing about that road kill stew? It was good. Very good.

American Dipper Part 2

American Dipper Part 2

Just bobbing along on the surface!

A LIFE list addition and one of the most interesting birds that I have had the pleasure to observe! A special thanks to Brad Esau who helped locate this bird today on the Coquitlam River (smal-medium size, clean & fast moving!) I managed to snap off ~ 250 images of this;ittle guy going about his life. A passerine who is most at home around moving water --- they can stand in the current, run along the bottom, swim beneath the surface using their wings for propulsion and then they hop onto the nearest rock and they look like they are not even wet! Absolutely fascinating and very memorable. :-)

A chunky bird of western streams, the American Dipper is North America's only truly aquatic songbird. It catches all of its food underwater in swiftly flowing streams by swimming and walking on the stream bottom.

Stocky, medium-sized bird.
Gray all over.
Large head; short neck.
Long legs.
Short tail.
Thin, dark bill.
White eyelids obvious when it blinks.
Constantly bobs body up and down.

Size: 14-20 cm (6-8 in)
Weight: 43-67 g (1.52-2.37 ounces)

The American Woman's Home

The American Woman's Home, originally published in 1869, was one of the late nineteenth century's most important handbooks of domestic advice. The result of a collaboration by two of the era's most important writers, this book represents their attempt to direct women's acquisition and use of a dizzying variety of new household consumer goods available in the post-Civil War economic boom. It updates Catharine Beecher's influential Treatise on Domestic Economy (1841) and incorporates domestic writings by Harriet Beecher Stowe first published in The Atlantic in the 1860s. Today, the book can be likened to an anthology of household hints, with articles on cooking, decorating, housekeeping, child-rearing, hygiene, gardening, etiquette, and home amusements. The American Woman's Home, almost a bible on domestic topics for Victorian women, illuminates women's roles a century and a half ago and can be used for comparison with modern theories on the role of women in the home and in society. Illustrated with the original engravings, this completely new edition offers a lively introduction by Nicole Tonkovich and notes linking the text to important historical, social, and cultural events of the late nineteenth century. Nicole Tonkovich is associate professor of Literature at the University of California, San Diego and the author of Domesticity with a Difference: The Nonfiction of Sarah Josepha Hale, Catharine Beecher, Fanny Fern, and Margaret Fuller. "A valuable book made conveniently available." -Choice
