Skywatch Friday: New Sky, New Blog

Rainbow in Sycamore Canyon 1-21-10

Rainbows always seem like a new day is dawning with a promise of something good. I hope this is true for I am announcing a new blog called Sycamore Canyon Birds. This new blog will be targeted specifically to the birds seen in Sycamore Canyon. It will be useful for current and new residents in Sycamore Canyon as a tool to identify bird species seen in our neighborhood. I also hope to include information on bird feeding, bird habitats and where to spot species within Sycamore Canyon.

The need for this blog became apparent when I was talking to the head of the Sycamore Canyon HOA about birds and my blog. While there was much enthusiasm for my interest in birds, because of my position and blog posts on the Rosemont and limestone mines the HOA could not link up to my blog as it must remain politically neutral. However, I really want to share my passion and knowledge for birds and birding here in Sycamore Canyon, which is truly a unique area. After months of contemplation the only solution I could come up with was to start another blog specifically about birds and nature in Sycamore Canyon. Sycamore Canyon will remain my main blog but I hope to have Sycamore Canyon Birds as a reference tool for the Homeowners and anyone else who want to know about bird species seen here. I already have my first post up but there is not much there right now. I hope to tweak the site within the next few days and polish it up into a fine website that is useful to all!
Meanwhile, keep on skywatching at
