Montana Spring Birds

Yellow-headed Blackbirds

Yellow-headed Blackbirds, Montana.

It’s nice to see that spring has finally arrived! As on cue hundreds of yellow-headed blackbirds showed up last night near Helena, putting on an awesome show. It was great to finally see some color out there against our dull, brown, April landscapes we’ve had here in Montana. I’ll be out photographing sandhill cranes over the next couple weeks and hopefully I’ll have some more new Spring arrivals to share with you.

    Fek’lhr is the most talented person here as he has demonstrated with his highly detailed and deeply introspective computer painting of Birthday Dog and Sarah Cthulu Parker. I can sum up Fek’lhr’s genius in 2 words: Bottomless Depth. I suppose one could also describe Bryce’s Granny with those 2 words, when her pants are off, which is ususally the case, or so I have read.

    Wow, these look great. Talk about a peanut butter overload. I can see why you didn’t want to bake the cookies and just finish off the batter!
