Doesn’t get much better than this. All taken in wetlands on the CU South campus, which CU and the progressive City of Boulder want to destroy.

    Nice pics! So what is all that white, reflective stuff on the ground?

    Turkey Vultures. Frequently see them, sometimes pretty good sized groups of them, drying their wings in the morning sun along the nations hi-ways and bi-ways. That is one bird that is rarely seen as road kill despite the fact they spend a lot of their time feeding on the same along the roads.

      Yea. Turkey vultures, aka Buzzards around here, are called that because they are similar in size to turkeys and can run fairly fast on the ground, like turkeys. Yes, you don’t see them as road kill often, but it does happen, at least around here.

  4. Such irony that climate marchers chose a day that was 36 deg below normal with snow. The faces look glum but nothing deters the religion.

    “The temperature is rising, So are we!”

    Al Gore effect.

    What is that electric blue bird ?

  7. annieoakley says:

    I believe it is a Mountain Bluebird and not the Indigo Bunting.

    I hope you are putting all these photos forward to the public, to show what they will be losing.

    But as we know, Greenie environmentalists DON’T GIVE A STUFF about real wildlife.

    They just DO NOT CARE.

    Tony, please contact me about giving permission to broadcast your youtube videos on local cable TV and a version of your recent Washington State Senate presentation that I merged with your slides. I would also like to put this presentation on youtube.

    Thank You

    Unfortunately local council politicians are often the most difficult of the species. Tell them something they don’t like and they may dig in their heels immovably.

    I had this with our local city council – they were mulling renewable energy installations a few years ago, so I sent them a submission with lots of citations about the harm wind turbines do (especially highlighting Guardian, Noam Chomsky and other left wing sources). Furthermore I pointed out that changes in legislation could cause the council to be liable in the future for damages for bird deaths or residents’ health problems.

    But I also said roof top solar panels are OK, and pointed out the council had lots of roofs they could put them on. Also if necessary they could foster townspeople doing the same through subsidies if they wanted to.

    Surprisingly I had a call from their enviro guy and we had a nice chat.

    Roof top PV is pretty useless and very expensive, but the idea was to give them something they could virtuously preen over which didn’t do much actual harm, except spend money, whilst injecting fear of future legal action over wind turbines by enviros if the political landscape changed.

    So far it has worked.

      Remember , they removed the old non-energy unit on Kooragang…

      … to make way for the new coal terminal. :-)

      Gees that thing was odd, only time it seemed to turn was when there was a “greenie” event in town.. wind or no wind.

    Love this blog Tony. Your photography is getting better by the day. But your dry and blunt destruction of the anthropogenic catastrophic climate fraud is fantastic. Keep up the good work.
