Subject: Re: [PABIRDS] ID help -- Hooded Warbler, Allegheny County
Apologies in advance for the length of this reply, but Doug raises one of the most fascinating aspects of songbird behavior -- the variability of song types within species, across ranges and even among individuals themselves. There's been a lot of research on this in recent decades, but we're a long way from understanding exactly why and how particular birds end up with their own specific vocal arrays.
FW: [PABIRDS] gypsy moths and birds.
Some history here...gypsy moths are Eurasian natives, and were
brought to this country in the mid-19th century in a misguided
attempt to create a domestic silk industry. They escaped into the
wild in New England, and began moving out from that epicenter.
The moths hit northeastern Pennsylvania in the 1930s, and the first
major infestations reached southeastern Pennsylvania, where I live,
in the late 1960s and early 1970s. As Deb said, the gypsy moths would
go through boom-and-bust cycles, their populations eventually
reaching plague proportions in which the entire forest would be
defoliated in mid-June. Then disease would sweep through, the
population would crash, and it would be a number of years before it
built up again.

Second Friday in October: details of a 'photography shoot' attended
by four members of the Conservancy at Linn Run on Oct 8, 2004
what struck me as almost whimsical at first was the odd orientation of all of us photographers, scattered here and there, pointing our equipment at different angles at independent subjects seeking suitable compositions. At length I became accustomed to our common yet independent photo quest and my initial introspection faded. I simply blended in, making sure not to invade the radius of another's photo-space, and started taking pictures of my own.

Why does our so-called compassionate federal government feel compelled
to continue to force its one-size-fits-all electronic-voting mandate
on everyone? We already have perfectly suitable levered machines with
laudable tactile feedback that have been used ever since I started
voting in 1976. Why not simply let Florida solve its own problems?
I say to the feds: Leave us alone.
The Municipal Authority of Washington Township, a newly formed sewer
authority, is forcing every resident adjacent to their new sewer lines
to connect without regard to state law, which provides that they only
have authority to mandate connections to homes within 150 feet of
An auto tax could help us get away from property taxes
We all know we need to do away with the stifling property tax in Pennsylvania. Why insult our intelligence by not proposing a specific tax shift option? We all know the tax must come from somewhere. Perhaps some will come from small sales tax and income tax increases.
But what about this: Why not institute an automobile tax like California has.
Government of the people, by the people, for the people has finally perished from the earth ("Pa. high court clears way for Westmoreland electronic voting," TribLIVE.com, March 2).
