Life is good!
A week ago I went to Puerto Vallarta to try to save my broken heart. Unfortunately I failed to achieve this, and I had to return home with unfulfilled cause. This would normally have been a hurtful experience, humiliated and leaving no perspective for the future. But it wasn’t so. I felt pretty good, and optimistic, because unexpected things happened!
During my failed mission I was staying at Rancho Primavera at Bonnie’s good will. I had no plans about birding on the ranch. Both because my thoughts were elsewhere, and because the normal birding season was over. But despite of this I still brought my birding gear. Routinely after 30 years of birding, I guess. You never know.
And exactly so! Bonnie and I had not been talking about birds while planning for my arrival, so when I got there my eyes grew big, when she told me that a hermit had been coming to the feeder during the last several days!

300 million years of unchanged beauty.

Birds, Butterflies and Dragonflies
Still mostly Mexico and Denmark
|Did you know that...|
|The Monarch butterfly is poisonous. Despite of this the Black-backed Oriole and Black-headed Grosbeak have learned to eat and digest them at the big wintering sites in Michoacán. But they do vomit frequently and in cycles of 4-7 days they stop eating the butterflies. Probably to allow the body to decompose the poison. 60 % of the mortality among the butterflies is caused by these two species.|
