I’ve decided to go wide today, sharing the variety of birds spotted in my yard (and over the fence) while lurking with the Nikon D3000.
The featured image (above) is a pair of House Sparrows.
Next … I think this is a female Scarlet Robin. A new-to-this-blog bird.
Fairly certain this is a female Scarlet Robin
or perhaps ’tis juvenile Scarlet Robin
Below, another new-to-this-blog bird … there was a small flock of these Yellow-rumped Thornbills in my neighbour’s yard.

The blue sky vanished and rain threatened. So I took my camera inside. For a while this week, it looked like we might go camping but rain is expected to be consistent tomorrow. We will hold off, yet again!
Perhaps I will get some writing done. Perhaps not.
I have decided to merge all my blogs into one. I pay for an upgraded site, so I may as well make the blog I love the most my primary site. I’ve found it too hard to separate writing from the rest of my life. Anyway, I was never really rapt in the idea of trying to present myself as a professional writer. I think those polished sites with professional headshots are for aspiring writers who want an agent and publisher. Not me.
Ad-free! This proposed blog merger came about after I checked it out when testing a laptop we bought on eBay. There was a couple of video ads on my blog post. I hated the fact that they were there. I usually just see an innocent ‘from time to time your readers will see an advertisement here‘.
I will export the best bits? of this blog over to christinejrandall.com. I’ll stick the book stuff on a landing page, and have the home page showing the latest blog posts. Though the theme might change, I’m keeping this blog’s tagline and the owl photo header.
Okay – now I want to go and fiddle with themes … So I will, ‘cos I can.
Do have yourself a great weekend!
