Bird Poop: Buteo regalis, up, up and away

February 8, 2011

Soaring in the emptiness of a winter sky, it had been seen for weeks. Spotted atop a weathered telephone pole, the large bird had been watched by a game warden as it searched the ground for any movement. Having seen it lift its prey as it flew away one afternoon, the officer was grateful to have shared a brief moment with such a magnificent being.

“Robert Lee,” said the male voice when I asked again for a location through the static of his call. “Who?” I asked. “Not who, but where,” he jokingly replied.

Casual cooking with Kris

January 13, 2011

Welcoming readers to my world where I enjoy simple, sometimes quick, but always delicious meals.

This week's recipe comes from the oh-I-haven't-had-a-chance-to-get-to-the-store section. I was pantry searching and revving up that thing called a thinking cap, which wore me out. I had no meat thawed out and takeout budget was empty, so after surveying the damage and lack of choices I discovered a twist on an old dish.

Oil spill life-threatening to water birds

January 11, 2011

The morning of Jan. 3 promised a return to some sort of normalcy. The holidays were now a pleasant memory. Awakening to the sunlight hitting our east windows was a reminder of a new day for 2005.

Halfway through a cup of coffee, the phone rang. Recognizing the game warden’s voice, I listened as he asked us to meet him in Stanton. The urgency of his request was understandable. Knowing about how long it would take him to drive from the Pecos River, we decided upon a meeting time.
