From the Belle Tower | ‘Inside Out’ more than an escape from the heat

While mobbing of predators is a fairly common behavior for a variety of bird species, e.g. jays mobbing hawks and owls, same for mixed flocks of titmouses, chickadees, nuthatches, wrens, etc., this was my first observation of two different pairs of catbirds cooperating to drive away an unwanted intruder.

From the Belle Tower | Empty nest syndrome gets trial run

Now that the Princess has officially graduated and will soon be off to college, Duh Hubby and I have been inundated with helpful advice from friends who have already coped with a suddenly empty nest. They have bravely gone before us and forged a path, rather like a trail scout on the wagon trains of the Old West, except without all the smallpox.

From the Belle Tower | Stop messing with bygone icons

I have never liked those weird duets with dead people (Rod Stewart and Ella Fitzgerald, Barry Manilow and Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand and Elvis, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett … wait; no), and I have the same reaction to KFC’s new “please-buy-the-dead-guy’s-food” campaign. I like my beloved icons to stay in the ground, or vault, or urn, not to be resurrected to tell the world, “Hey, I died a long time ago, but I’m back and I’m tastier (or more harmonious) than ever.”
