Read my new book, The 10 Best Things You Can Do For Your Bird at Amazon or at many other fine distributors like Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and more.

By public demand, and after a delay of an embarrassing number of years, I've finally put my notorious essay, Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman, free on the fabulous internets.

A bibliography of my published books and stories.

Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Adult readers only please -- explicit sex and violence. For updates on the "Dead Tree Project" and other topics, you may visit the official fan site, Passages in the Void..

My Bird Lists -- My Louisiana State Life List, My Yard List and, tah dah, My World Life List.

HEY! What happened to the Peachfront Conure Files? The world's only OFFICIAL Peachfront Conure site now features free peachfront conure coverage, including a magazine length Intro to Conures previously published in American Cage-Bird Magazine, now free on the web. I offer the best free Peachfront Conure information on the internet. If you have great Peachfront Conure info, stories, or photos to share, contact me so I can publicize your pet, your breeding success, your great photograph, etc. on my site. Thanks.

enough of this kite business, says the mockingbird

2004-05-12 - 9:35 a.m.

The Mississippi Kites are keeping a lower profile this morning. When one of the Kites tried to sit on the bare spot in the oak tree, a Northern Mockingbird sat above her head and made little forays downward from time to time. Then another Mockingbird flew over to join the fun.

The male House Finch has learned how to perch on the jessamine vines, lean over, and sip from the rear feeder. I don't think I've seen him successfully get nectar before, although I've often seen him try.

The Carolina Chickadee family stopped by for a quick visit.

A Carolina Wren fledgling came and sat on the roof of the parrot porch for a minute. A parent chased him back under cover before feeding him. I couldn't tell how large the family is this year. At least three birds, though.

My Halloween lilies look fantastic. Lots of spiderworts too. I have a red milkweed species just starting to bloom.

a few minutes later

The male Northern Cardinal is feeding fledglings -- at least four. That should keep him busy!

Hummingbird Report: So far it's adult male RTHUs, either singly or chasing, at the near feeder.
