Bird In The Weeds
Right now I'm guessing that this bird is an Eastern Phoebe. Follow that link and see if you can tell the difference. Even if I'm wrong it was still fun chasing this bird through the weeds. Well, it wasn't much of a chase really. It made it easy on me and I got the pictures.
The odd thing was that I had it in my head that this was a black-capped chickadee. They look nothing alike. I knew right away that the color was wrong, but my mind told me that wasn't important. It's always important. Color is one of the main things that help identify a bird. Oh well.
Nature Center Magazine and Rat Tales. Each site seems to have mostly different audiences than The Everyday Adventurer.
The problem was that I had my accident just when I was about to get Nature Center Magazine going good. Now I've been finally able to start, but I still have to move slow with it. I can say that I've made plenty of very good changes to that site since those plans started. It was intended to be an online nature center and it is finally becoming exactly that.
Rat Tales has been a completely different challenge. I already knew how to promote nature blogs, but a fiction blog? I've had to learn that one from the ground up. I've put what I consider to be some very good stories there, but with a very small audience who I'm very grateful to. And now I've finally figured out a few ways to promote this site that I've put so much work into. So I think maybe I'm slowly finding my way with those.
You'd think that this is all trying to do too many things at once, but doing these things that I love is the only way to do it. We only have one life as far as I know. Why not do everything we can? And try even more. It's not fun for long if it's too easy.
