Thursday Piñon Jays

birds

This is a still taken from a video. There are about 1,000 more of these birds out of sight in a tree.

Just a little something to break the usual rush of events. These are remarkable birds. They usually descend onto feeding platforms in huge flocks, making cries that sound very much like seagulls.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    Yes I am convinced that birds exist to distract us from ourselves. Thanks to all who feed and water them.

      That would be me! I always put out birdseed because then we, uh, have birds! Every place I’ve ever lived, I feed the birds. Yup. Which means I must also be supporting a vast population of mice, pack rats, squirrels, and raccoons.
