Feb 16 Sunday

Day three of the big Count. Here is one of the more infrequent visitors to the backyard!

He makes up for it in size ;) Based on the roof tile size, I put him at 3.5-4 feet tall. Guess that puts the 'Great' in Great Blue Heron!



Feb 13

Just after sunset and the moon was rising, thought I would try to get a photo. Then I noticed one after the other, a few minutes a part, formations of birds flying south. I missed the best shot, a much larger V



Feb 3

Almost got skunked by the latest storm (.04"), maybe Thursday will be better.

A couple cool photos from Mrs WTS as she chaperoned Yeti in Fairbanks -

Some freezing fog rolled in overnight -

One cool ride!


Icy tree



Jan 31 - Can't be long now and the twins will be off on their own. Maybe one will take over the rose bush.



Buddies -


Jan 29 -
Looks like Monique's website is over capacity due to Phoebe's chicks again and the photos I linked from her site are not showing up :( Guess I should have copied them to Photobucket and linked there.

She's back online - AND the chicks are Fledged!
Here is a Link to a video of them feeding in their new temporary home.


They seem to enjoy grooming each other!


Mrs WTS had a good chance to see Northern Lights last night during her trip to Fairbanks BUT it was cloudy! The Aurora activity was rated 'Active' last night, up from 'Low' the night before. This according to the Geophysical Institute at University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Current forecast track -


Jan 27,

Phoebe's chicks are about to fly the coup, I think!

They are sitting up on the edge of their knit nest and testing out their little wings.


Here's a link to a YouTube video of them feeding and sitting on the edge and if you watch long enough, one of them hops back down in the nest to cozy!

Jan 22,

I almost changed the topic because it seemed there were no new updates from Monique - but I was just not checking the right links.

Chicks are really getting big - a couple photos and a link to a feeding video.

Jan 20th


Jan 22nd they are in a new 'home'


A photo for size reminder :)


Here is the link to the twins feeding!

Thanks to Monique at http://mfrartwork.com for maintaining photo records on her site.

Having a bit of weather envy, most of the country has a lot going on - the big vortex, freeze, snow, ice. Sooner or later something will drift this way.

Hope you're doing ok, Karen, thoughts are with you.

Too much doing at work, hard to get a new blog theme going yet, but time to let kitties rest :) A bit of randomness, as sp might say..

Phoebe's chicks are really getting big, crowding the nest!


Feeding time -


It's chilly, Phoebe is covering em up -


These are, of course, captures off of phoebeallens.com - 9 day old chicks - Go Phoebe!

Hummer cam current view -



For those of us whose desk is, let's say, not super tidy and not jumping on National Clean Off Your Desk Day (second Monday of January, this year it works out to be Jan 13th) to do something about it - a fledgling attempt to get a new 'day' going is trying to help our self image. IDTBM or International Day To Bite Me is January 13, promoted by a blogger in Germany a few years back. I was reminded by bug's fun new blog ;)

Hi GG! That looks like LUPINES!! Do they smell like grape soda??

Hi, cp! I planted 1 in a somewhat wetter area where one was for a couple years doing well until it was unceremoniously whacked by a gardener! The other 2 are definitely in the dry zone! - PS, it helps if someone gives me free plants on the condition that I plant them! :) (one of the ladies I work with at the park!) Seems like my income has been fixed for awhile ;)

Hi GG! This lack of 'winter' has definitely brought on the mid winter blahs here. Thanks for a cheer up :) I am not too confident about that bringing any rain, at least for a week! Apparently it works on guineas though!!

Hey Ylee! I'll send you a ticket, if you think it will help ;) Are you really going to get another Vortex? Is that just some new description of what always happened to the midwest each winter? The weather folks here have to make up new ways to describe 'sunny and warm' for our daily forecast LOL!

Hi, cp! I'm looking west as far as I can see and it is blue! Oh, did you mean the radar?? I need to do that still ;) I can't believe on the very last day of the month we are finally getting some rain (maybe!!) Ooh, grape soda lupine! I wish they would grow in my yard.. I just planted 3 rosa minutiflolia, 1 is struggling a bit. Maybe if it would RAIN!

Hi BC! San Diego city and county is following State guidelines for Graywater use. And my guess is that we will see more info about people implementing as the drought goes on ;) There still is not much love for waste water recycling here even though other counties are doing it to various degrees. I didn't realize Caltrans was such a large consumer of potable water. At least around Escondido, there are many signs warning not to drink the roadway landscaping water because it is reclaimed. I figured that was the rule, maybe more the exception about road way landscape water.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't San Diego start on a gray-water collection/recycling project several years ago? I think they were starting to collect run-off from storm drains and industrial use to use for roadside plant irrigation. My memory is kinda sketchy on that. Maybe they were just talking about that. Or maybe they were actually starting to do it.

Hi GG! Thanks :)
I know, what's up with lottos? They are not very cooperative... Plan B it is!

Hi cp! The birds were too far away ( and too quiet) for me to ID but that would be my guess. Not sure why they were heading south.

Looks like we are finally cooling down for awhile, maybe close to normal, Lol.

Currently chuckling and rubbing hands together in anticipation of relocating to the west coast. Am definitely going to have to continue buying my monthly lotto ticket.

Of coarse a blog brain storming water solutions has a slightly better chance of designing a do-able system we could crowd source than I do winning the lotto.

Hi sp! Shoot, no - that's not right.. Crap - that's no better.. shucks - maybe.. shucks, I missed the DUCKumentary last night. But PBS is good on replays so I'll watch for it! I am not sure what birds were in my photo but the formations were very sharp and they were flying south which confuses me a bit. The largest north county body of water is right in line with where they were going and I know large groups of ravens and/or crows head there in the evening - but not in formation!

I have been looking up a little about desal plants - maybe a blog topic. Water recycling is so much less energy intensive and doesn't involve dumping heat and brine back into the ocean.


I'm guessing your trip to the big city went fine, did you say you were volunteering for babysitting?? ;)

Wonderful picture! I watched the DUCKumentary last night on Nature and realized I should be seeing the Vs about now.

Adding my two cents ... desal is not the only, or the best, option. There's no reason, except the ick factor, that we can't recycle our waste water using the same technology. No brine and what's left can be easily treated and used for fertilizer and fill. These plants can go anywhere, not just coastlines.
When I was in school we designed a solar water purification plant that was entirely doable and used essentially no electricity, and what it did need could be got from PVs. In fact, there was a prototype built and running that we compared ours to. That one got de-funded before it had completed its research run and was then said to have failed, but it was actually doing quite well, of course.
(Sorry I don't remember the details - long time ago and I don't even have access to my notes, atm, if I even kept them.)
It's all about the money. If it burns it makes money, because burning makes it go away and it has to be replaced.

Maybe if we could gg's spouse to just visit they'd both see how nice it is and stay. Also, easier to manage the kidnapping if they're already here ;)

Hi, BC - Yeah, getting GG's other half out here is the hard part of the plan! Since there is no convincing, kidnapping may be the only hope ;)

That's quite a variety of birds so far, not sure I will have as many different types. Forgot to bring my binocs to work, but birds are scarce anyway - have only seen a red tail hawk so far. My better counts will be over the weekend.

Oh, hi Skye! Snuck in while I was typing, Thanks!

Oh, BTW, from my blog, but inspired by you:

In my 20 minute bird count for this morning, most of these birds visited the feeders. The crow and flicker simply flew overhead on their way somewhere.

67 dark-eyed junco
40 steller's jay
20 black-capped chickadee
13 mourning dove
7 song sparrow
4 chestnut-backed chickadee
3 european starling
1 northern flicker
1 western scrub jay
1 american crow
1 spotted towhee

I should rubber-stamp their hands next time as I'm pretty sure I saw some of the same faces more than once.

Quoting 95. Ylee:
+You could dry out the brine, and market it as sea salt.... :' )

Escondido Sea Salt, the brand Yetis prefer, 5 to 1"
Quoting 97. WatchinTheSky:
Yetis are very discriminating consumers ;)

And NOAA estimates 1 liter of seawater contains 13 billionths of an ounce of GOLD, so pumping 100 millions gallons a day means they could extract $14 a day of gold as well!!


You've just about got it all figured out. The only thing that remains is to kidnap GG's spouse so she can come to Escondido (or may Encinitas) to run the desal plant. I'll bring the chocolate!

Today has been a lull for the week and what a nice lull it has been! A high of 58 for us, the highest in months! And considerable sunshine too, although not completely clear. A bit of a breeze is adding to a feel of early spring days. But not to last. Three storms are coming in between tonight and Sunday afternoon, successively getting stronger, with rain and wind. And then it will turn cooler next week, so today's weather is somewhat of a mirage.

Seahawk fever is settling down, but not gone. People still have a lot of flags, big and small, in front of their houses or businesses and they are still being celebrated. Stores have all kinds of Super Bowl Winner gear for sale now. The day after the game some of the "winner t-shirt" selling stores were opening up at 6 AM to start selling. Kind of a version of Black Friday all over again - guess it was called Blue Monday, but not the usual meaning. I actually did buy some t-shirts that Monday afternoon (no, not running out at 6 AM for those!) and that area of the store was swarmed with people elbowing each other (nicely, it was calm, but busy) and helping each other find sizes. You had the definite feel that if you lingered a minute you would lose out. But where I was looking it was polite - something Seattle is noted for. A lot of funny internet things went around showing how even the game night revelers on downtown streets would wait for the "walk" sign to cross streets as the party rolled along, and many other "you first" examples. Probably a bit overdone, but the city is noted for, as one example, all cars waiting excessively long at a four-way stop for someone else to go first. Again, overdone, but based in some truth. It sure was a fun "happening" for the NW!

The 'ice' photos are really good! And the hummer photos are too. I love humming birds and do try to entice them to my yard. Some years I am successful but this past year I only saw one. I wonder why?

I have not visited the cam lately. I hope the babies are doing ok.

So did you get some rain recently? The rains have returned here a bit better, after our recent snow. We managed about 2.5 inches, the further south you went the more there was - looks like Briar did better, which fits the pattern. It is all gone now and we warmed way up - a high of 55 yesterday - the highest in months. And it felt warm too and a little too warm. I think I was overdressed. Anyway, rains are hitting here about every day now with new systems for at least the next few days. But so far not really an overwhelming amount, given that it is February. We only have 1.24" total for the month, but the next few days should boost that.

Hi GG! See you guys soon! Yeah, maybe not.. Besides, we would have to share the water we don't have :( But we could have great chocolate parties :)

Desal is tricky, as you say. The brine effluent is a problem, all of the sea life that get chopped up inside the plant is a problem, energy is a problem, cost of the water is a problem. Santa Barbara (about 1/3 way up the coast) built a small desal for 34 million or so in response to one of the last droughts. 'Normal' rain came back as the plant was finished and it was closed - too expensive. Now it would cost 20 mil to start it up again, so they are not considering it.

Of course, having no water is a problem ;)

Hey great news about the desal plants, I'll be moving right down to work at one...Yeah, good luck getting my spouse to leave Texas.

Yes they are energy hogs and the brine reject does raise some questions about where to dump it. The good news though is that they can be kind of small and generally don't have smoke stacks unless they are operating a power plant with it.

The bad news is that if they are building them you really do have a water shortage. Go visit Calpoppies blog about xeric native plants.

Oh, had a small chocolate party last night. I feel like I am hung over. In a good way though.

VERY conveniently, BC! Much like gasoline pricing, whoops, 'unexpected maintenance' - supply is down, raise price! US market is conserving too much, price might fall - start exporting gas to other countries, now supply is reduced - raise price!!

The larger the corporation, the less sense of community.. It's all about profit and ballooning CEO etc. pay, I get it. But it irks me when they start running touchy feely good commercials about how much they are looking out for us. Hmm.., almost a rant, where did that come from ;)

The Great Backyard Bird Count! Should be fun:)

My temp is the same as your temp right now: 42. It's pretty much going to stay the same for the next 48 hours as another Pineapple Express is heading this way. Snow is melting fast and was mostly gone before dark today. Happily no ice here, as it warmed up last night before the rain started.

Thanks for the heads up about the Great Backyard Bird Count. I created an account AND I changed my blog title to help spread the word.

Northern Cali rain totals hit the national TV news tonight. I'm impressed. It certainly doesn't end the drought, but runoff is making it's way into some formerly empty reservoirs, so that's a good thing.

That water scenario you describe is the same all up and down the west coast. Cut water usage to conserve, profits are down, so water company raises rates. And have you noticed that, when water is again plentiful, they conveniently forget to lower the rates again?

Hi BC! Word of the Portland (Oregon, in general) ice and snow is spreading 'round the world! My sister's oldest and his girlfriend moved to Korea from Oregon to teach and he sent word over the weekend that he was hoping everyone was OK back home cuz he heard the doom and gloom ice stories!

Hi cp! I was thinking it was early for rufus here, not that I see too many anyway ;) But I double and triple checked color, brown back and all (thought it might have been an Allen's)- he zipped off before I could get the cam ready.
That spotted towhee has the most unusual call - speaking of birds, the Cornell Lab has rolled out a bird ID app 'Merlin' that has a lot of promise. Once it is tweaked in and the database beefed up, it should be easy and nice aid for id-ing birds.

Hey, Ylee! There could be many Yeti sightings lately from Portland, Or to Portland, Me to Alanta!
Naw, that was just your basic morning coastal low clouds - no rain in the coming 10 day cast, 80s by end of the week. Yeti is back to working on his tan - I keep telling him 'It's no use' ;)

Speaking of no rain - front page in our local paper was a dilemma. Apparently, the SoCal Water Authority has been good at storing the water saved from users cajoled to cut back. Now they may have to decide between being prepared for continued drought or expecting the drought to bust and sending water north to the more parched NorCal.

Don't know how water is billed in Kentucky, but here there is a no win scenario for the users. Water is in short supply, so you need to cut back to keep the supply from running out and getting expensive. But guess what? We cut back and the water authority revenue is down so they raise the price! Someone here suggested that 'we' need to build desal plants every 5-10 miles along the coast! Sweet! Go to the beach and get a nice view of 3-4 giant factories. Besides, desal water is still more expensive, and where is all the power to run 100 giant juice hungry salt filters!

Glad the kitty is working out! They know when they have a good home.

Rufus are early! We get the spotted Towhee here also. Mainly in the fall and winter when there is to much snow in the mountains. So of course there are no Towhees here this year, LOL!

Today is tooooo windy to do much outside!

Toledo, WA, got about 4 inches of snow from the pineapple leftovers. According to nearby PWS's that amounts to somewhere around 0.15-0.20 inches of water. Not much more than you got! I think Portland had about twice as much.

Hi BC! Did not end up with much rain, .12" so is your big heavy snow a fringe pineapple effect? Looks like we are done for at least a week, in fact next weekend is supposed to be 80.
Plenty of nice weather Sunday to work on bluebird box ;)
Spotted a couple of birds not seen too often - a spotted towhee and a Rufus hummingbird.

Hi, GG ! C is SO happy with her kitty :)

Bummer. I guess it's only northern Cali that gets the Pineapple Express. That's okay, I guess, as long as that translates into some Sierra snowpack. Still, it would be nice if SoCal got wet, too.

Sweet that Theia missed Mrs. WTS and chose her lap for bath and nap. Besides, there's no better way to settle back into home life than to be cat-atonic (as in cat sleeping on her, can't disturb).

Cool Runnings is at Sochi. And now their luggage is, too. Gotta root for them! The story is here. Forget the video, just read the story.

Thanks for the link in #70. Several other Ana and Pavan videos popped up in the sidebar and I watched some of them, too.

Exactly! And Mrs WTS is so excited - Theia has voluntarily jumped up on her lap to groom and snooze! And after only a couple of months ;) An added benny while watching the Games!
Does Brazil have people in the winter games?? I suppose if Jamaica has a bobsled team ;)

PS, I went looking for a good gangnam style video to post and the best ones I really don't dare. But if you want to say ; "Oh My!", google Lara Croft tomb raider gangnam style on you tube.
