Twitter Weekly Updates for 2012-09-30

  • The trees at the edge of the woods are now an almost even mix of green and yellow leaves—until the sun comes out and turns them all to gold. #
  • @canislatrans Hey Chris, is there an RSS feed for just your contributions to Pharyngula? in reply to canislatrans #
  • @canislatrans O.K. If I could even just sort by author at the site, that would be great. Nothing against P.Z., of course, just limited time. in reply to canislatrans #
  • I'm looking at a walnut when it lets go and thuds to the ground—the branch rocks like a diving board. A vireo calls softly from the woods. #
  • An ode to everybody's favorite doll-like vegetable product: baby carrots. http://t.co/gvGkRH1R #
  • Four bluebirds take turns checking out the empty flicker hole in the dead elm—a winter nest site, maybe? A raven flies past, croaking. #
  • An agitated Carolina wren progresses from between-station radio static noises to musical chirps, then silence. A freight train wails. #
  • A cranefly drifts through the yard so slowly, I wonder if it's asleep. A lilac limb wobbles with warblers—don't ask me what kind. #
  • Some very little-known facts about thimbles—my Small World series lurches onward: http://t.co/VRleA6xY #
  • With the walnut leaves down, I can once again see the line of aspens: still green, still full of ambiguous gestures. (Hello? Get lost?) #
  • @arriabelli @northsidevoyeur Actually, I've been known to say that on occasion. Birds can absolutely be assholes, just like anyone else. in reply to arriabelli #
  • @arriabelli Thanks for reading. in reply to arriabelli #
  • From up behind my parents' house, some vaguely melodic notes: a blue jay? Or my father whistling as he hangs out the laundry? #
  • Dead leaf (videohaiku): http://t.co/NZac4OhT The presence of a leaf reminds a caterpillar of some unfinished business. #
