Next year I am so going to organize an Earth Hour yoga class. By candle light or maybe even by flashlight.
Haven't had time to develop my yoga warm up for bird watching practice yet but in the meantime here is an excellent half hour practice by my beloved teacher all about the neck and shoulders.
One needs to have some range of motion to do it but I highly recommend this practice.

I am sure the bird has a native name too.
It took 12 of us about 12 minutes of very concentrated peering to find him but once we did it was very exciting. I had seen one a few years ago at Powell Butte with Kes but still this one was a joy to watch.
My link today is for this cool new program for learning to identify birds by their songs called Lark Wire. I am so going to try this out when I find anything that vaguely resembles spare time. :)

I mentioned laughing as I walked by that the tree was giving him scant protection and he looked up and said..."it's okay I am a born Oregonian."
It was interesting to me that he was taking shelter under a tree that was beautiful but only had maybe eight leaves on it.
Ah, Nature. Here is a link to a wonderful short video of an Irish Kingfisher, ummm fishing." and here is a link to the whole program.
