Linda  --  Thanks for the links.  I'm currently monitoring eagle activity along the Potomac.  They're pairing up, sharing lunch, etc.  Keeping a watch for new nests, in addition to the established ones. 
The last bloom on 04R3, cut when first blooming on December 5, is opening in the cold kitchen.   --  Griff

Subject: [iris-photos] OT-CHAT: seedlings & waay off topic - cranes


Iris - well, they are frozen.

Seedlings are growing on the sun porch, where it's been cold enough most
nights to accumulate chilling for ungerminated seeds (<40oF). The other
day, I found one seedling in one of the burritos that I hadn't been
checking regularly had 3 leaves and had grown <through> the paper towel.
It was in the wine cooler, which has a glass front, so was actually
able to produce green pigment. Tough lil dude.

On to the off topic: They now have live video cameras traveling with the
crop of endangered whooping cranes learning the route south.

Trike camera (attached to the lead ultralite), live somewhere over Alabama:


In the mornings and afternoons, handheld camera at the traveling pensite
or broadcasting trike preparation and take off.
