I was just reading how Joel Osteen’s megachurch finally folded to social media pressure to open its doors to flood victims in Houston. His megachurch, which seats over 16,000, is located near downtown Houston. I researched Joel Osteen’s net worth and it’s around 40 million dollars. I know that many preachers and ministries out there…… Continue reading Tax the churches
Last year I was thrilled to discover a pair of Mississippi kites conducting courtship in the neighbor’s tree right across the street. The tree was literally 50 yards from my front door. I’m a raptor freak. Most of my early background in the wildlife field was spent studying or counting raptors. I’m always trying to…… Continue reading Suburban Mississippi kites
My wife and I recently traveled to Peru for the second time in two years. The first trip to Peru was a combination of her and some of her students netting for bats and me joining her and separating from her students and going a bird tour to the infamous Manu Rd. Our guide, Saturnino,…… Continue reading Monkeys from our recent Peru trip.
Our national embarassment still thinks he is campaigning. If you watch his rally, it’s all about Trump. It’s not about the United States. It’s about Trump. It’s about making him feel better after a disastrous week, last week. He basically painted himself as the victim of last week’s insanity. He claims the press is dishonest…… Continue reading Trump’s unhinged rally in Arizona.
The solar eclipse came and went. I was fortunate to be invited out to Salley, SC, to Whit Gibbon’s property. Whit is an internationally-known herpetologist and author of numerous articles and books. He had invited me out to his property back in July and I quickly determined he was making it a bio-preserve. Whit is…… Continue reading Total Solar Eclipse
My wife and I recently took a tour to northern Peru. The idea of visiting Peru actually came last year when we did a shorter trip to east-central Peru which took us on the well-known Manu Rd. and to some of the lodges along that road. It was a fantastic trip but we encountered some…… Continue reading Some hummingbirds at the Waqanki Lodge, Peru.
We caught another buck last night. I guess the .389 is going to work for me after all. I had been reluctant to shoot it since I’ve always been the driver and it’s essentially my boss’s gun. The settings and buttons on the gun make it much more challenging. My boss is very proficient with…… Continue reading Buck #2
I captured my first buck last night around 22:30. I have personally captured probably ~30 adult does in a previous 7 year study we conducted on fawn survival. However, I have assisted on hundreds of captures of adult and neonate deer in my career. We implanted the does with vaginal implant transmitters (VIT) in that…… Continue reading My first captured buck.
