Apparently there was an odd smell in the office today at Lochwinnoch. The source of the smell was only found a couple of hours later when one of the staff members was talking to us about dead birds and remembered there was a dead siskin in a box under one of the desks. So I ended up bringing him home, he’s a bit far gone to try and mount so I’m drying his wings, feet and tail. We are also trying his skull with the beetles so we’ll have to see how well that goes. He also has some jewellery so hopefully we’ll be able to learn a little more about him.

Thought of this after watching a vine. Let's say Starscream is about to address his people live with Circuit and Longtooth filming live. Windblade asks if he can hold something for her and he just sighs and says fine holding his hand out. She puts her hand in his as soon as they start filming. What do you think?

first off i think Windblade did that to mess with him, cheeky little siskin

second: cybertron loses its collective shit (again) and next thing you know it’s all over the news, starscream is ready to ascend and windblade doesnt know whether to regret her actions or laugh


Father John Misty - Two Wildly Different Perspectives

Another week and another new video from Father John Misty, Two Wildly Different Perspectives, is taken from new album, Pure Comedy, this video was directed by Matthew Daniel SIskin.

One side says:
“Y’all go to hell”
The other says:
“If I believed in God I’d send you there”
But either way we make some space
In the hell that we create
On both sides

One side says:
“Kill ‘em all”
The other says:
“Line those killers up against the wall”
But either way some blood is shed
Thanks to our cooperation
On both sides

One side says:
“Man, take what’s yours!”
The other says:
“Live on no more than you can afford”
But either way we just posses
And everyone ends up with less
On both sides

I hope all of you find happiness and love this new year <3

Passer domesticus. Male house sparrow.

The sun came out and now the swifts are screaming, as though the air is a fairground ride.

I mentioned a while ago that there was a nuthatch on the neighbour’s bird table, which for years has seen nothing but house sparrows. Until this year. I think the demise of a few local cats has given the garden birds their freedom again. Or maybe the neighbours are just trying different foods.

So I’ve been loitering with a camera, hanging out of my bedroom window and spying on the neighbour’s visitors.

I haven’t a hope with the swifts or the swallows. Chaffinches and siskins haven’t returned and that bleedin’ robin won’t stay still. But I’ve a few to post over the next week or so.

 I have just returned from a lovely few nights away in Northumberland to celebrate my birthday. We stayed in a beautiful little cottage which couldn’t have been more perfect with its bird theme running throughout.

We spent our days exploring the wilderness; we were lucky enough to bump into a red squirrel in the National Park, and watched Siskins nibbling on dandelions from the cottage window.
