14 Years Of Blogging

14 years of blogging (party crow by Joan Guerin)

9 November 2021

On this day in 2007 I posted my first blog at Outside My Window. Today in celebration let’s look back at three memorable articles from my first month of blogging.

Clash of the Titans: On the advent of a new raptor pecking order a male Pitt peregrine chases Central Catholic’s red-tailed hawks.

Loon Fallout: Remembering the day we saw more than 300 loons at Moraine State Park.

The Night Visitor: An eastern screech-owl speaks up while we rake leaves in the dark.

Thank you, my readers, for keeping me going every day. And a very special thank you to the many photographers who allow me to use their photos and videos on the site.

Happy 14th Bird-thday to the Blog!
