Anne Wagner tells of the Japanese internment camps [camps for United States Americans of Japanese ancestry] established in the US in 1942 following the bombing of Pearl Harbour. We hear from people who were interned at those camps and hear their experiences of what it was like to be perceived as the enemy within.

Cute baby Canada geese or goslings feeding with their family. Who could resist filming them? Goslings are out in force this time of year. These now non-migratory geese enjoy the vast expanse of green grass and clover in a green way area. Just be careful where you walk barefoot in this park. A video of Canada geese migrating in fall is below here.

American Goldfinches

29 May 2016

Goldfinches and Pine Siskins – their cousins – love thistle feeders. If you look closely you’ll see a few teeth marks from the bear cubs on the thistle feeder.

This handsome little finch, the state bird of New Jersey, Iowa, and Washington, is welcome and common at feeders, where it takes primarily sunflower and nyjer. Goldfinches often flock with Pine Siskins and Common Redpolls. Spring males are brilliant yellow and shiny black with a bit of white. Females and all winter birds are more dull but identifiable by their conical bill; pointed, notched tail; wingbars; and lack of streaking. During molts they look bizarrely patchy.

Red-bellied woodpecker feeds her two remaining babies in the nest box fresh mango pulp – a great delicacy that is in season in late May. Also nest box camera video from inside. Red-bellied woodpeckers do not fledge from the nest until almost fully grown. They hatched almost 4 weeks ago and will leave any day now!

A Blue Jay fledgling’s first days outside the nest are full of wonder at the world around it! Spend some relaxing quality time with this young Blue Jay as it waits patiently for its parents to feed it and contemplates me filming it, the bugs around it and what is that strange furry thing coming at me!
