One sure sign of spring is the return of the robin and other warm-season birds. The robins and swallows have been doing their mating dance in my yard for several weeks now.

Goslings at Woodland Park

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

You may have seen the  photo in the Daily Interlake on April 15: Downy Newcomers, of an African goose adopting a family of Canada geese. Devvi M. has captured a series of photos of this heart-warming family, which she describes as follows:

“Babies are so sweet and this is the story of an African Goose who adopted a Canada Geese family at Woodland Park. The goose is serving as a nanny, and was very protective of the goslings….and Mom and Dad didn’t mind the extra attention. The parents were getting a little unsettled when some kids got a bit too close, so the family decided to hit the water and work their way back home.

Raptor Cam – Red Tail Hawks

Red Tail Hawk at Raptor-Cam

by Catherine Haug, MArch 14, 2012

Many of you may know that I spent my career-life in Portland, Oregon, a very environmentally-conscious city. While there, I joined the local Audubon Society chapter, and I continue to get their newsletters.

Five years ago, the Audubon Society and a local radio station (KGW) installed a raptor cam to spy on a nest in the middle of downtown Portland. What the cam captures is streamed live, online at You can also follow this on the Raptor-Cam facebook page and on the raptor cam blog.

This cam has captured the pair of hawks and their 13 young hatchlings over the previous five years, and will continue until the nest is no longer used.
