Thursday Birdblogging

FeralLiberal made a few cardinals very happy in a recent snow. They returned the favor by being very photogenic.

If you have snow/ice/sleet keeping the birds from their usual food source, you might try hanging up a pine cone rolled in peanut butter, then birdseed, grass seed, or the like, where its off the ground but where they can reach it. And since I love to watch them, I usually hang a creation like this outside my windows.

On the first anniversary of Molly Ivins' death,
Her last piece, opposing the Bush Administration's Iraq surge, ran on January 11th, and like so much of Ivins' work, ended with an optimistic call to action. "We are the people who run this county," she said. "We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to stop this war. Raise hell."
