Pileated from the Porch

 This young female Pileated Woodpecker was just in the front yard, tame as a cat!

 Yes, our Raptors web site (www.raptorsoftherockies.org) was hacked, and look at the perpetrators. Cialis! Of all things. Many, many thanks to Webmaster Steve Palmer for fixing it right away. Whew, scary.

And on a lighter note, Nico is slowly recovering from the loss of her sister dog, Mookie, as are we.

Falcons of North America 2nd Edition

DONE! Submitted to Mountain Press Publishing Company yesterday and six months almost exactly since I began work on this project. The first version was the favorite of my six books, and came out 12 years ago. Now, major edits and updates, 150 new photos and a total of 264 from Rob Palmer, Nick Dunlop, me, plus some guests. Psyched for this one, larger format! WHEW!

So Sad

 Mookie our favorite dog passed away Saturday, nearly 10 years old and our family. She suffered a stroke about a month ago and was on pain meds, then appetite meds, then she just gave up. A rough night and died here at her home. She was our constant companion, hikes and hunting with the Peregrine, and always laid down in any body of water she came across, river or irrigation ditch. RIP Mook, XXOO.
