Broome Golf Course birding

10,000 Birds

Last week I introduced you to the new bird-watching hut at the Broome Poo Ponds and now I will let you know it is not just about the ponds, but the adjoining Broome Golf Course! The water that is recycled from the Broome Poo Ponds goes towards keeping the Broome Golf Course nice and green year round and not only is this an ideal situation for the people that play golf, but it is also ideal for numerous species of birds. Golf Course birds!

Why Tucson, for the birds of course!

10,000 Birds

If you think about the city of Tucson alone, there are over 120 city parks, 5 public golf courses, the Tucson Botanical Gardens, Saguaro National Park, the Reid Park and Zoo, and the incredible Sabino Canyon. With some of the best diversity, best number of birds to be found anywhere, a Tucson Audubon Society that is beyond outstanding with it’s community involvement, and of course, it gets hot!! The post Why Tucson, for the birds of course!

Birding, Cool? But Of Course!

10,000 Birds

Just ask Felonious Jive, as Seagull Steve did in a wide-ranging interview on Bourbon, Bastards and Birds. If you are sensitive to curse words you shouldn’t click through and you should really get tougher. Just who is Felonious Jive? The coolest birder in the west, that’s who! Asides

Humane Society University to Offer Courses in Fall 2009

Critter News

Very cool! I've been looking for something like this for a long time. From the Humane Society's press release. Further advancing its leadership in human-animal studies, Humane Society University, an affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States, announced today that it has received a license as a higher education degree-granting institution by the District of Columbia Education Licensure Commission.

UK Hunting Ban Could Be in Jeopardy

Critter News

It bans fox hunting, hare coursing, and stag hunting. Tags: UK fox hunting hare coursing stag hunting It's been five years since the hunting ban was passed in Britain. You can still flush a fox out with dogs, but you can't kill it. If the Tories take over, it could be in real jeopardy. They are totally against the ban.

Correcting course in Appalachia

10,000 Birds

We all know that songbirds migrate at night to avoid predators and take advantage of the calmer atmospheric conditions, but it’s still very easy for a bird that weighs little more than a third of an ounce to get blown off course. The verdant Appalachian Mountains, North America’s concerned forehead, stretch from the northern parts of Georgia all the way to the fir covered forests of New England.

Redhead Aythya americana

Of course, other ducks have red heads too but for whatever reason Aythya americana got the name and now has to live up to it with unlimited sex appeal. That is, of course, what I did last weekend.

Back to School with PetMD University

4 The Love Of Animals

Of course, it didn’t hurt that all the topics were about dogs and cats, and how we can help them live healthy, happy lives. It’s easy to get started, just create your free account, choose dog or cat, and then enroll in the courses you most want to know about. For my first course I enrolled in Exercising with your Dog.

Where Does Vegan Baby Sky Get Her Protein?

Animal Person

Of course she eats a bunch of batter first, then a couple of pancakes. I'm constantly asked about the details of Baby Sky's life. Where does she get her protein? How are her bones going to grow without cow's milk? You mean she's never eaten bacon? Are you a communist? At Baby Sky's 15 month checkup she landed at about the 75th percentile for height and weight. She comes from small stock, so I do see that decreasing a bit. It's already down from the 90th percentile. She was a gigantic baby!

Vegan Atheist 40+ Parenting

Animal Person

And of course, many self-identified vegetarians eat fishes and/or chickens. Of course the chicken is not recognizable from the one we just saw and loved. I was going to change Animal Person to Vegan Atheist 40+ Parenting and come back to blogging. Doesn't have a ring to it at all, but a young man at Whole Foods yesterday called himself an "animal person" while ordering a roast beef wrap and I thought: Note to self-must change blog name if going to resume blogging.

“You Want Farm Animals to Go Extinct!”

Creature Talk

Of course I do - but I want their existences to be ones of joy and comfort. This is one of my favorite responses from omnivores when they find out that I would love it if the whole world stopped eating animals. “But what would we do with all the animals that are currently on farms? They’d have to die–we can’t possibly keep them all around if they’re going to serve no purpose.* Is that what you want? You want all the farm animals to just die ?&#.

To My Friends at Thanksgiving

Animal Person

Of course, the world outside of our home tells a different story. Thanksgiving 2010 will be Baby Sky's first, and our opportunity to introduce her to the notion that our family doesn't eat animals (not to mention that other historical story we'll be correcting). There will be no greyhound corpse on our table, no turkey corpse and no pig corpse.

Hal Herzog's "Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat"

Animal Person

Of course I was appalled, but out there in the mainstream world, she is an outlier. Of course that can be debated. Hal Herzog’s “ Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat ” (Harper 2011), though fascinating, is ultimately depressing for vegans and animal rights activists. Over at Animal Rights and AntiOppression , we’ve been discussing tactics and sharing our thoughts and experiences about what works and doesn’t work when it comes to advocacy.

A Plant-Based Diet is Good for Your Heart

Creature Talk

He would stop at fast food restaurants and get 2-3 burgers to eat over the course of a few hours. Several years ago my now 59 year old father had a heart attack. It wasn’t a major heart attack, but it has definitely caused him problems. He’s been on medication since it happened, and has regular stress tests to see if the damage to his heart has progressed.

Vegan Betty Crocker

Creature Talk

Of course I couldn’t taste them in a cake or anything, but I didn’t really like working with them anyway. I never used to bake. Ever. I think there were 2 main things that kept me from baking: 1) baked goods only lead me to eating more junk food, and 2) eggs. Eggs gross me out - always have. Every time I would eat them in my pre-vegan days, I’d feel sick afterward.

Chimpanzees are NOT “Pets”

Creature Talk

Now, of course I feel awful that Ms. Earlier this week a Connecticut woman was attacked by a 200 pound chimpanzee named Travis who had been kept as a pet for 14 years. The woman was friends with the chimp’s “owner&# , and was called to help coax him back indoors after he escaped using a key to unlock the front door.

On Fighting for "Animal Rights"

Animal Person

Of course , I say to myself, language is worth fighting for. Being featured on ARZone's worldwide Live Guest Chat has reinvigorated my thinking about a couple of topics ( here 's the transcript). And then I read the "OMG!!!!!OED!!!!!LOL!!!!!" OED!!!!!LOL!!!!!" LOL!!!!!" in today's New York Times, and I couldn't resist posting.

Clarification on Messaging

Animal Person

Of course, those people, who are often the "spiritual" ones, are particularly frustrating to deal with. Vegan education/advocacy for animals is easiest for me when I know my audience. And by "know," I mean I have a relationship with them and/or I understand what drives them, what they appreciate and what they can tolerate.

Of course, that also rendered her defective and she was therefore immediately "discarded." But now, of course, I want more. There she is. my girl. She has beaten the odds and made it another year.

Traveling with dogs

4 The Love Of Animals

And of course, be aware if your dog gets car sick or not! For traveling longer distances with your dogs, be sure to pack any medication they take, a favorite toy, and of course, a comfy bed. Does your dog love traveling in the car with you? Baby sure does, sometimes she even likes to pretend that she is driving, which is why we were excited to create this doggy drivers license for her using the fun Subaru app on Facebook !

On "EATING ANIMALS" by Jonathan Safran Foer

Animal Person

Of course, the problem here, as in the entire book, is that factory farming is clearly the enemy, while killing animals unnecessarily isn't given any more airtime than Foer's personal, philosophical moments that he doesn't require of anyone else. I immensely enjoyed "EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED" (even on the big screen) and eagerly anticipated "EATING ANIMALS" by Jonathan Safran Foer.

He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous. We are so excited to see it!

Plug in your music, and watch them start to move and groove. They will dance until the music stops. They have a lot of fun animals to choose from. We were sent a dancing cat and a dancing dog. One alone is a lot of fun, but watching them dance together was even more fun!

Baby the Maltese got to try out the Princess Leia version, but as you can see, there are also Darth Vader and Yoda costumes available. The Leia buns were an absolute riot!
